Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

State Government releases 50 year vision for Victorian environment

Posted on 22 December, 2009 by Connecting Country

The Victorian Government has released “Securing our Future: A white paper for land and biodiversity at a time of climate change”, a document 4 years in the making.

The white paper’s vision is to reverse the loss of nature and reconnect one of the most fragmented landscapes in Australia.

Commentators highlight that substantial investment will be required to make the goals of the white paper a reality.

Environment groups alsoexpressed concern at the proposals to overhaul the state’s main conservation legislation, including abolishing the independent Victorian Environmental Assessment Council (VEAC).
