New South Wales Policy Priorities

Every two years AFG holds a Policy Forum where policies are comprehensively reviewed and updated by our members.

AFG’s New South Wales delegates have identified the following priorities for consideration by policy makers in New South Wales:

  • Private Native Forestry
  • Fire Management
  • Forestry is a Legitimate Land Use
  • Emissions Trading
  • Bioenergy
  • Government Responsibility for Extension and Technical Services

AFG will continue to advocate for sensible, sustainable and equitable policies that will allow the forest industry to compete and prosper in a complementary manner in the rural landscape. Today there are more reasons than ever to support effective integration of trees into the landscape and the sustainable management of private native forests is increasingly important. Removal of unnecessary legislative and policy impediments is a key component of this process.

The State Policy Priorities for New South Wales are available as a PDF document via the link below.
