SUBMISSION TO KEITH HOLZWART - APPLICATION TO CLEAR PASTORAL LAND (S38(1)(H)) ON AVAGO STATION

12.05.2021

ECNT calls on the Northern Territory Government to introduce a new regulatory system for protecting the Territory’s unique biodiversity that will require bioregional planning and management of the Territory’s ecosystems, including setting limits for land clearing on an ecosystem scale and the requirement of offsets for all greenhouse gas emissions that result from land clearing.
