Submission to NRC Issues Paper on weed management in NSW – Dec 2013

This submision sets out the dimensions of NSW’s weed threat – the extent and costs of weed invasion, the rate of introductions and naturalisations, and invasion drivers – and then proposes reforms to legislation, policy, governance arrangements and funding.

It particularly stresses the need to fully implement a prevention focus and to develop a sustainable funding model.

A joint submission prepared by the Invasive Species Council, Greening Australia, National Parks Association of NSW, Australian Association of Bush Regenerators and Nature Conservation Council of NSW.
