The program aims to improve how we manage and use Victoria’s forests. We’re doing this through better science and knowledge, regulation and connections with our community.

It is important that every Victorian has an opportunity to share their views and help shape these important reforms.

Key highlights since the last newsletter include:

• Appointment of a Scientific Advisory Panel comprising scientific experts, and a Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) Reference Group comprising peak bodies of key interest groups, to provide recommendations on potential improvements to the Victorian RFAs;

• Release of the Independent Consultation Paper ‘Modernisation of the Victorian Regional Forest Agreements’ prepared by Dr William Jackson; and,

• Joint Victorian and Australian Government community engagement on the Victorian RFAs including face to face events across regional Victoria and online engagement via response to survey or written submission.
