The Djarlma Plan will be used to help shape the direction of future investment and jobs, and provide opportunities for collaboration, innovation and growth in the sector.
A stakeholder engagement process is currently underway to have input into the Plan. The aim is to unearth views from a broad range of people with differing interests in the forestry sector that are beyond ‘business as usual’ and help shape a sustainable future for the sector.
The consultation is based around four key strategic directions for the industry that were identified by the Reference Panel. These are:
• Community benefits – the community recognises the benefits from forests and woodlands
• Industry for the future – improving the economic and social values of the forest industry through collaboration and innovation
• Healthy forests – delivering ecologically sustainable forest management
• Wood products and ecosystem values – reducing our carbon footprint
