The fires followed the Andrews government`s announcement in November of the immediate protection of 90,000 hectares of altenwald and the shutdown of an additional 96,000 hectares of native forests to save the largest threatened glider. Andrews said contracts to supply native forests would be extended until 2024 if a $120 million package for businesses and workers went into effect before local logging ends in 2030. Details of the agreements were only made public after a Senate vote that ordered the federal government to present the documents, more than a week after they were signed. Regional forestry agreements (CSFs) between the governments of the Länder and federal governments allow the exploitation of indigenous timber on public lands if certain conditions are met, such as. B the protection of biodiversity and endangered species. Practicing senior attorney Brendan Dobbie said the 20-year lifespan of the documents raises concerns about the currency of science that results in the deals. Under the new agreements, forest monitoring practices will be extended to national parks and reserves, which is very positive according to the independent expert. Colbeck said the agreements met their environmental and industrial goals. “It`s almost like a time-taking time that everyone focuses on cutting down native forests and doesn`t care too much about how species move with climate change, which affects parks and reserves as much as state forests. In a statement posted on the Department of the Environment`s website, the government said it had modernised the 20-year-old agreements to allow for “the sustainable management and exploitation of Victoria`s forests” by 2030. Amendments to RTAs in November recognized Premier Dan Andrews` commitment to immediately protect old-growth forests and would allow for “more timely interventions” to protect endangered species. The state government on Wednesday published five updated regional forest agreements (CAAs) covering local deforestation in different parts of the state. Contracts for the sale of minutes do not contain a protocol, since you have already arranged them yourself or with your contract journal.

It should, however, explicitly list the volume the buyer expects and the prices you can expect for each species of tree, type of quality, etc. The NSW agreements for the Eden, North East and South regions are similar to the new forestry agreements in Western Australia and Tasmania, as they have a rolling life. The Environmental Defenders Office said it is evaluating the agreements for these reasons. Legal organisation Environmental Justice Australia said the agreements had been renewed without properly considering what the fires meant to wildlife. EJA chief executive Brendan Sydes said it was a “massive leadership failure” at both levels of government. “Which, to me, indicates that the land government is essentially looking for ways to avoid being tried for some of these potential transgressions of the impact of logging on biodiversity species like long-footed potoroos or koalas and other groups of animals and plants,” he said. Former Victorian fire director Ewan Waller, who was tasked by both levels of government with verifying the performance of the CSFs, said important commitments in the new agreements had been removed. The Wilderness Society has called on the state government to immediately avail itself of the big event clause and review deforestation practices in light of the damage caused by the fire. The former regional forest manager said he welcomed signs of commitment from both levels of government to the new agreements – which are a variation of documents developed in the late 90s – but were rather a “reissue” with “necessary inclusions like climate change and carbon”. “You should have said that the framework of the regional forest agreement is no longer sufficient to deal with the conflict between the value of biodiversity and logging,” Sydes said.
