The Commissioner's approach to independent science reporting
Vision: Independent reporting on Victoria’s natural environment to enable practical action.
Dr Gillian Sparkes AM has developed two frameworks for environmental reporting in Victoria. 'Framework' in this context refers to the approach to science reporting for 'state of' reports to be prepared by the Commissioner.
In 2015, the State and Benefit framework was tabled in the Parliament of Victoria for the State of the Environment 2018 Report. In June 2020, the Commissioner built on this work with the tabling of the Science for Sustainable Development framework for the State of the Environment 2023 Report.
