Independent Review of the EPBC Act - final report / Graeme Samuel ; Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment

by Samuel, Graeme | Australia. Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment.

Publisher: Canberra : Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, 2020Description: ix, 252 p, PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: Australia’s natural environment and iconic places are in an overall state of decline and are under increasing threat. The environment is not sufficiently resilient to withstand current, emerging or future threats, including climate change. The environmental trajectory is currently unsustainable. The EPBC Act does not clearly outline its intended outcomes, and the environment has suffered from 2 decades of failing to continuously improve the law and its implementation. Business has also suffered. The Act is complex and cumbersome and it results in duplication with State and Territory development approval processes. This adds costs to business, often with little benefit to the environment. The EPBC Act and its operation requires fundamental reform to enable the Commonwealth to: • set clear outcomes for the environment and provide transparency and strong oversight to build trust and confidence that decisions deliver these outcomes and adhere to the law • actively plan for environmental outcomes and restore the environment to accommodate Australia’s future development needs in a sustainable way • measure effectiveness to ensure that the Act delivers the right level of protection to make a difference for the environment and to support adjustments where changes are needed • respect and harness the knowledge of Indigenous Australians to better inform how the environment is managed. – page viii Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
