ALCA’s supplementary submission provides additional guidance on embedding conservation into the proposed Policy Framework for diversification leases in Western Australia.
Despite the direct and majority contribution of our natural environment to Australia’s social, economic and cultural prosperity, protecting, managing and restoring our deteriorating environment continues to be structurally underfunded.
Our submission reiterates the importance of protecting existing and future investments in the Western Australian conservation estate, as well as providing both certainty and clear pathways for conservation land use to drive investment in conservation.
ALCA’s briefing note summarises the key issues and opportunities for collective action to protect, restore and manage our shared environment.
Environmental health and resilience at the landscape-scale is indivisible to the long-term sustainability, viability, and resilience of agriculture. As such, our environment and its unique biodiversity values should be recognised as an essential and direct beneficiary within Australia’s national drought policies and plans.
We welcome the expanded list of objectives and targets in the 2022-2032 Threatened Species Action Plan released today by the Minister for the Environment and Water.
