State of the Environment Reporting for the Australian Capital Region

The 2008 State of the Environment Report for the Australian Capital Region covers the period July 2004 to June 2008.

Overview

The Australian Capital Region was created in the early 1990s by the elected leaders of the 17 NSW Local Government Areas and of the ACT, to jointly benefit from a regional approach to planning and development.

The first regional State of the Environment Report was published in 1997, by the ACT Office of the Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment, it is a joint effort of all the governments in the Region. Subsequently reports were published for 1997–2000, 2000–04 and for 2004-2008. These reports represent the goodwill and cooperation that has developed in this Region. The reports meet the requirements of the NSW Local Government Act 1993 , and of the ACT Commissioner for the Environment Act 1993 .

The 2009 State of the Environment Report for the Australian Capital Region covers the period July 2004 to June 2009.
