Northern Australia forestry industry consultation forums

Friday 17 May 2019

Northern Australian forestry industry stakeholders are encouraged to register for free consultation forums to have their say on future actions for regions industry growth.

The forums, to be held in Cairns, Nhulunbuy, Darwin and Karratha in June and July, are part of the Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA) project to identify the growth potential for northern Australia’s forestry and forestry products industry.

Forum participants will be invited to provide input into initial findings of a literature review of strategic documents and regulatory frameworks to identify the extent of commercially productive resources including native, plantation and farm forests.

The project team seeks to develop longer term relationships with forum attendees to seek further input on the final report and future actions for policy, R & D and investment decisions.

Forums are open to anyone engaged in or wanting to be engaged in the forestry and forest products industry, but specifically:

- forest owners and managers
