National Wetland Policy: Australia

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

In response to the requirements of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands to ensure the wise use of wetlands, the Australian government developed a framework policy for the cooperative management of wetlands. This comprised a federal policy and an expectation that the state/territory jurisdictions would develop their own policies. The principal aim of the policy is to ensure that the Government's actions were consistent with those expected under the Convention, in particular the promotion of the wise use principles for wetland management. The policy was developed with and benefitted from consultation with wetland experts and key stakeholders and other government agencies.
