South Australia Policy Priorities

Every two years AFG holds a Policy Forum where policies are comprehensively reviewed and updated by our members.  At the most recent Policy Forum, for the first time, delegates met in State groups to consider policy priorities for their State.  

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

  • Fire Management
  • Water
  • Government Responsibility for Extension and Technical Services
  • Dealing with Public Perceptions of Plantation Forests 

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 South Australia are available as a PDF document via the link below.
