Central Highlands Regional Forest Agreement

Amelia Young, the Wilderness Society`s national campaign director, called it “Franklin Dam of Forest legal judgments.” A modernized rFA process should ensure that forest management decisions are informed by up-to-date scientific and credible information on the current and likely future effects of climate change and other major disruptions. This means improving our understanding of how the interaction between climate change and other pressures on the natural environment leads to cumulative effects and increases the threat of forests. Strategies for managing forests, parks and public reserves should include multi-step measures that strengthen the resilience of Victoria`s forests, including national policies and directions, landscape measures in AHR regions, and forest management measures at the local level. Friends of Leadbeater`s Possum called for the logging of forests by public logging companies in 66 cut RPF should support the recognition of the rights of Victoria`s traditional landowners, collaborate in the management of land in state parks, reserves and forests, and seek economic and cultural opportunities for Victorian Aborigines. “This is an extremely important decision. It shows that the provisions of our logging laws under the Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) are not intended to protect endangered species,” said the party`s forest policy spokeswoman, Senator Janet Rice. On November 7, 2019, the Victorian government announced the complete end of the forested forest by 2030. without reducing the supply of wood until 2024. To be consistent, any extension of the FRG should not exceed 2030. For the first time in 20 years, logging operations must be assessed in accordance with national environmental laws, after the Federal Court of Justice ruled that VicForests had violated endangered species laws. As PROs are intergovernmental agreements, the modernization process, which began in 2018, involved detailed negotiations between the Victorian and Australian governments. Friends of Leadbeater`s Possum argued that, in its agreement, VicForests had violated the code of conduct and that its agreement and exemption from national law was not valid. The HfA modernization process should examine how best governments can support the development of forest industries, including the forestry and forestry industries, tourism and recreation industries, bee and water industries, and ensure that these industries remain sustainable in the future.
