Harnessing private sector conservation of biodiversity
AbstractThis study draws together and builds on previous research by the Commission on the role of the private sector in the conservation of biodiversity. With more than 60 per cent of Australia's land area under private management, conservation cannot be adequately addressed without private sector participation. In addition to examining ways to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of biodiversity conservation activities by the private sector, it is also important to examine the scope for enhancing the performance of public sector provision. The paper outlines the role Governments can play in encouraging and facilitating more efficient and effective private provision of biodiversity conservation, such as removing regulatory constraints, clarifying rights, establishing cost-sharing arrangements and examining new markets.
