Native vegetation management in Australia
Department of the Environment and Heritage, 2005
The 2001 Native vegetation management in Australia report summarised the major government natural resource management institutions, programs and legislation affecting the use of native vegetation for each of the Australian, state and territory jurisdictions at that time. The report was produced as a product under the Vegetation Theme of the National Land and Water Resources Audit .
The report has been removed from the web site and will be replaced by an updated report in early 2006. To access the 2001 report, contact the Department of the Environment and Heritage library.
Reviewing progress on native vegetation management in Australia
There has been substantial progress in native vegetation management since 2001. Much of the information in the Native vegetation management in Australia report is now out of date. In 2005, the Australian, state and territory governments have reviewed and are revising the National framework for the management and monitoring of Australia's native vegetation (the Native Vegetation Framework, 2001) which outlines a coordinated national approach to native vegetation management. The Framework is a joint initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments, and designed to provide a mechanism through which agreed native vegetation management commitments could be progressed.
Further information on the Native Vegetation Framework Review can be found at http://www.environment.gov.au/land/vegetation/policies.html.
The Australian, state and territory governments each had a work plan under the Native Vegetation Framework. The original work plans are available as part of the Independent Evaluation of the National Framework for the Management and Monitoring of Australia's Native Vegetation and Jurisdiction Work Plans. These work plans are out of date, but indicate the scope of native vegetation activity in jurisdictions.
