Submission to the Productivity Commission Regulation of Agriculture: Draft Report

Productivity Commission's Regulation of Agriculture: Draft Report - EDOs of Australia submission

August 2016 – Download PDF

In our submission, we respond to specific findings and recommendations in the Draft Report regarding native vegetation clearing. We also identify a gap in relation to environmental data, ecosystem services and environmental accounts, and submit that the Draft Report does not sufficiently consider future challenges that agricultural regulation must address, adapt and respond to regarding climate change mitigation and adaptation.

This submission follows on from our February 2015 submission on the Productivity Commission’s Issues Paper on the Regulation of Agriculture.
