State of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Report Released

10/09/2004

The first State of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Report has been released.

Publication of this ground-breaking report marks a significant step in making management of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area (TWWHA) more open, informed, and accountable.

The focus of this evaluation is on management effectiveness over the decade since the first statutory management plan for the TWWHA was approved in 1992. This evaluation establishes the methodology for evaluating management effectiveness for the TWWHA, allows the progress in management to date to be examined, and provides a sound reference set of data against which management effectiveness under the 1999 and subsequent management plans can be evaluated in future.

The full report and a summary report are available online from the Publications section of this web site.

For further details, see the media release issued by the Minister for Tourism, Parks and Heritage, Mr Ken Bacon, at the Government's media release web site, at www.media.tas.gov.au.
