In December 2015 the Government appointed the Yarra River Protection Ministerial Advisory Committee (Yarra MAC) to provide independent advice on the key issues and opportunities for the river as well as improvements to the governance arrangements for its protection.
The Yarra MAC is seeking feedback from the community on the key issues and opportunities for the river. Its Discussion Paper has been developed to generate discussion and promote debate on about how the Yarra River is managed and protected in the future. It outlines the key issues and proposes a new management model to protect the Yarra River.
Environmental Justice Australia has made a submission which adds detail to our The Future of the Yarra report proposals.
