This strategy fails to provide a clear basis for effective action to conserve biodiversity and should therefore be redrafted to:
- Nominate specific objectives and actions and assessable targets that will comprehensively and effectively address threats and advance conservation biodiversity to meet Australiaâï¿½ï¿½s commitments under the Convention on Biological Diversity and elsewhere.
- Explicate lessons to be learned from the failure of the 1996 strategy to reverse the downward trends for Australian biodiversity.
- Demonstrate a commitment by the federal government to leadership on biodiversity conservation.
More information on the strategy is available on the Australian Government website.
