Submission to NRC draft report on weed management in NSW – Apr 2014

Review of weed management in NSW: Submission to the draft report of the Natural Resources Commission April 2014 prepared by the Invasive Species Council, the Australian Association of Bush Regenerators, Greening Australia, the National Parks Association of NSW and the Nature Conservation Council of NSW.

The majority of the recommendations of the NRC’s draft report are supported including important changes such as the permitted list approach to weeds, a new fund to respond to high risk weed incursions and the general biosecurity obligation. Missing from the NRC’s recommendations are improvements to funding in order to address the need for more resources to prevent and manage weeds.
