Extent to which the legal framework (laws, regulations, guidelines) supports the conservation and sustainable management of forests
There are currently 33 legislations that regulate forest management in Victoria. VEAC provided its Statewide Assessment of Public Land Final Report to government in May 2017, including several recommendations to reform the complex public land legislative framework. The Victorian Government has accepted, or accepted in principle or in part, all recommendations made by VEAC, including committing to rewriting the Crown land legislation over the next four years.
