About the fact sheet

Following the Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero in 1992, Australia's federal, state and territory governments agreed to a framework for the sustainable management of Australia's forests.

The 1992 National Forest Policy Statement aims for sustainable management of all Australian forests for present and future generations, whether the forest is on public or private land, within a reserve or is a production forest or plantation.
