Consultation on draft principles to guide recognition of other effective area-based conservation measures in Australia

The NFF does not support the draft principles to guide the recognition of OECMs in Australia in its current form. Several concerns from an agricultural perspective have been raised and highlighted, and the NFF would welcome amendments to seven of the eleven guiding principles. Further clarity on the scope and definitions incorporated under some of the guiding principles is also requested.
