We acknowledge the peoples of the Yuin and Wiradjuri Nations and the Ngarigo, Walgalu, Dharawal, Gundungurra and Ngunnawal tribal people, who are the Traditional Owners of the Country that is the subject of this proposal. We pay respect to the Elders past and present of these Nations and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people who read about this vision for our children, our forests, our world.

WE RECOMMEND:

  1. The Commonwealth and NSW Governments recognise ceasing public native forest logging is a cost effective and environmentally valuable way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

  2. The Commonwealth and NSW Governments agree on protocols for the cessation of public native forest logging to be eligible for Emission Reduction Fund credits.

  3. The NSW State Government change the management focus of public native forests from logging to carbon capture before NSW’s Regional Forest Agreements for the Southern Forest Region expire between 2019 and 2021, and to immediately commence negotiations to secure carbon credits from the Australian Government’s Emission Reduction Fund.

  4. The NSW Government links such carbon credit revenue with regional tourist infrastructure, wildlife protection and forest restoration, to generate long term, sustainable jobs in the region and to protect public native forests and endangered wildlife.
