Legal Framework for Protected Areas: New South Wales (Australia) I IUCN

Resource Type: 

This case study focuses on the legal framework for protected areas in the state of New South Wales,
Australia. New South Wales, in common with other Australian states and territories, is party to
arrangements for the establishment of the National Reserve System. The case study sets out the range
of protected areas that have been established in New South Wales, canvasses the relevant legislation
and discusses management processes. It includes a discussion of the involvement of Aboriginal people
in the management of protected areas on their traditional lands, the use of conservation agreements
between the government and private landholders, the establishment of a Marine Parks Authority, and
the issue of connectivity corridor conservation. This case study is a companion to the Australian federal
case study on protected areas law.
