Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act: a five year assessment

18 Jul 2005
Description

When the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act was passed in June 1999, the federal government and several environment groups promised it would revolutionise the Commonwealth's involvement in environmental issues and improve conservation outcomes. Andrew Macintosh and Debra Wilkinson analyse whether the environmental assessment and approval process under the Act is fulfilling its environmental objectives. They conclude that the regime has failed to produce any noticeable improvements in environmental outcomes.

A summary of their report is available via the link below.
