Australian Biodiversity Conservation Strategy review

Published 4 Aug 2015

The first five years of Australia’s Biodiversity Conservation Strategy (the Strategy) is being reviewed in 2015. The Strategy is a national framework guiding the biodiversity conservation policies and programs of the Commonwealth, State and Territories. As the Strategy was agreed in 2010, the first review is being undertaken in 2015. Input (see this link) is sought to inform the review, including general comments, or views on emerging issues, implementation challenges and opportunities to improve the Strategy.

Last month, the Minister for the Environment, the Hon Greg Hunt MP hosted the Threatened Species Summit. Recordings of the sessions are available to view here
