Australia's Biodiversity Conservation Strategy
Australia's Biodiversity Conservation Strategy 2010-2030 functions as a policy 'umbrella' over other more specific national frameworks. These are shown below.
National Framework for the Management and Monitoring of Australia's Native Vegetation (1999)
On 5 November 2009 the NRMMC endorsed the draft Australia's Native Vegetation Framework for public consultation, which occurred between 18 February and 7 April 2010.
The consultation draft has been developed to replace the National Framework for the Management and Monitoring of Australia's Native Vegetation (1999), which was agreed in 2001.

Strategy for Australia's National Reserve System 2009-2030
The National Reserve System Strategy 2009-2030 will guide the work on the National Reserve System in the years ahead. Australia's National Reserve System is the cornerstone to protecting our country's biodiversity - it is our nation's most secure way of protecting native habitat.
The Australian Weeds Strategy (revised 2007)
The Australian weeds strategy is a vital part of Australia's integrated approach to national biosecurity, and complements other existing and new national strategies for invasive species, such as those for terrestrial vertebrate pests and marine pests. Its aim is to minimise the impact of weeds on Australia's environmental, economic and social assets.

Australian Pest Animal Strategy
The focus of the Strategy is to address the undesirable impacts caused by exotic vertebrate animals (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish) that have become pests in Australia, and to prevent the establishment of new exotic vertebrate pests.

National Principles for Rangelands Management
The Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council endorsed the 'Principles for Sustainable Resource Management in the Rangelands' in April 2010. The principles outline the unique features and values of the rangelands and guiding factors underpinning resource management in Australia's stunning rangeland landscapes
These principles update the 1999 National Principles and Guidelines for Rangeland management.
