Working with some of Australia’s top legal minds, EDO is helping to develop the next generation of Australian environmental laws. These focus on environmental protection and sustainable development with transparency and accountability, rather than regulated destruction.

EDO NSW has prepared a report for Humane Society International (HSI) which sets out the basic requirements for the introduction of new national biodiversity law in Australia, including best practice elements for a new Commonwealth Environment Act.

The report was published in June 2018 and follows earlier proposals in 2015 and 2017.
