Eden forest agreement and IFOA

NSW Forest Agreement for Eden Region

The Eden region covers about 800,000 hectares, from near Bermagui and Nimmitabel in the north to Delegate and Cape Howe in the south. About two-thirds of the area is forested, with most forest on public lands — either as state forest or national park.

Comprehensive regional assessments were undertaken in the Eden region in 1997. Detailed studies of the forests were conducted. Fauna habitat was mapped, local heritage identified, and the economic status and social make-up of local communities examined. The assessments took into account the impact of forest industry changes on the environment, townships, local economies and communities.

The Forest Agreement for the Eden Region of NSW was made on 5 March 1999. A printed copy of the agreement can be obtained from Environment Line.
