Environment ministers from across Australia met today in Canberra to progress key environment issues of national significance.

Following the Council of Australian Governments’ (COAG) decision in December 2013 to streamline and refocus its Council system, environment ministers discussed which of the matters formerly overseen by the Standing Council on Environment and Water required resolution on a national collaborative basis. Ministers agreed to give priority to reviewing environmental regulation.
