Balancing biodiversity conservation outcomes with social and economic priorities is a complex and challenging task.
To address this challenge, conservationists and all levels of government are working hard to develop approaches to protect biodiversity and streamline planning approval processes to support urban and regional growth.
This conference will bring together the key players currently developing strategic and landscape scale approaches designed to:
Protect and manage matters of national and state environmental significance
Develop and implement strategic impact assessments
Streamline planning approvals processes
Manage biodiversity offsetting and market-based schemes
