Abstract

The task of developing bioregional planning processes which will protect biodiversity is part of Australia’s commitment towards a society based on principles of ecologically sustainable development (ESD). There is a wide spectrum of views about how such a society might be established, and the Federal Government is endeavouring to find a path between these, without losing the momentum built up over the past decade. In adopting the policies of ESD, the Convention on Biological Diversity and the National Strategy for the Conservation of Australia’s Biological Diversity, a commitment has been made to consider the protection of biodiversity at an equal level with the goals of economic well-being and social equity.
