Public consultation period now closed

In 2012 Australia’s Native Vegetation Framework was released to guide the management and protection of Australia’s unique and valuable native vegetation.

In 2008 the Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council  (NRMMC) confirmed the importance of the Native Vegetation Framework as the national policy document for achieving:

  • a reversal in the long-term decline of Australia’s native vegetation, and
  • an improvement in the condition of existing native vegetation.

The NRMMC directed that the review of the framework be finalised.

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.

Public submissions on the draft Australia's Native Vegetation Framework have now closed.

The consultation draft has been developed to replace the National Framework for the Management and Monitoring of Australia’s Native Vegetation, which was agreed in 2001.
