The modernisation of the Victorian Regional Forest Agreements (RFAs) and forest management system is guided by the latest science. RFA Assessments are undertaking a multi-year program of works that will provide, data, information and knowledge to the full suite of DELWP's forest management reform activities over the next few years, including but not limited to Modernising Victoria's RFAs; legislative and regulatory reform; integrated forest and fire management planning and maintenance and any review of the Forest Management Zoning Scheme.
These factsheets provide an overview of the latest science that is informing the modernisation of our forest management system. Further factsheets will be provided as they become available. Should you require an accessible version, please contact the DELWP Customer Service Centre on 136186 or email us.
