From climate change to the circular economy; natural capital markets to the Brisbane 2032 Games; the Samuel Review of the EPBC Act to landscape restoration, threatened species and heritage protection – the Department of Environment Science has its sights firmly set on delivering contemporary policy and law to secure strong environmental outcomes. Karen’s presentation will cover where the priorities and opportunities lie, but also where the challenges and limitations exist.
