ALCA submission to second Treasury consultation on Measuring What Matters

Nature is critical to our wellbeing, and adequately measuring and reporting on its condition is a key part of building roadmaps to protect and restore Australian nature. Policy action must reflect all significant pressures facing nature. Acting on climate change alone is not sufficient to avert Australia’s nature crisis, and ALCA strongly recommends that the wording in emerging policy themes and draft descriptions in Measuring What Matters should reflect all pressures, not just climate change.
