  1. Impacts of native vegetation clearing and the need for regulation
  2. Evidence base for the inquiry – current application of the EPBC Act
  3. A national role in native vegetation management
  4. Benefits and protections for landholders
  5. Statutory review of the EPBC Act
  6. Recommendations
  7. Further references
