Australia’s Biodiversity Strategy 2010-2020, consultation draft – May 2009

Resources |

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 Australiaâ��s 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.
