This website is for vegetation policy makers, planners and researchers. It provides a nationwide perspective on the latest vegetation information with a heavy slant towards native vegetation. The site has been developed by the Executive Steering Committee for Australian Vegetation Information (ESCAVI) and focuses on consolidating broad-scale maps and data (e.g. landscape, catchment, regional, continental) as a basis for setting management priorities and for reporting on status and trends. These applications of vegetation data and information will be critical inputs to the development of major policy and program initiatives such as the review of the National Vegetation Framework and Caring for our Country
For other vegetation topics such as threatened plant species, forest management, weed management and funding, see our list of related vegetation websites in Other websites about Australian vegetation.
This draft is a strategic national policy framework, aimed at guiding management decisions that effect native vegetation in all jurisdictions and all sectors of the community.
This assessment was carried out as a cooperative partnership between the Australian Government, and state and territory agencies. It reflects a strong commitment to manage biodiversity, address the threats and halt continued loss.
