National Bushfire Management Policy Statement – Objectives and KPIs

A landmark body of work prepared by the Forest Fire Management Committee of Forestry Australia and the Forest Fire Management Group (FFMG) was released at the 2022 Symposium, in Albury.

Forestry Australia President Bob Gordon said it was vital that all states and territories worked together to tackle the nation’s growing fire challenges in a coordinated and accountable manner.

Fire ecologist Dr Kevin Tolhurst AM, from the University of Melbourne, who led the development of the new framework within Forestry Australia’s Forest Fire Management Committee, said the introduction of measurable outcomes would provide a means to systematically analyse Australia’s fire management progress towards meeting the documented national goals.
