Monitoring and review
Monitoring and annual reporting of NSW Forest Agreements
Section 69H of the Forestry Act 2012 requires the Minister to prepare an annual report on each NSW forest agreement, including addressing:
ecologically sustainable forest management (ESFM) in the region, and
compliance with any integrated forestry operations approval (IFOA) for the region.
The annual reports:
give the progress on the achievement of milestones detailed in each forest agreement
summarise the results of monitoring the ESFM criteria and indicators
outline Forests NSW' compliance with each IFOA.
Annual reports are compiled from information and data provided by the EPA, Parks and Wildlife Group of OEH, and the Department of Primary Industries - Forests NSW and Fisheries.
Reviews of NSW Forest Agreements and IFOAs, and of RFAs
Four NSW Forest Agreements and four IFOAs have been reviewed.
A review of the State and Commonwealth Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) is also underway.
