Conference Description:

The Tasmanian Forest Practices Authority (FPA) is hosting a two-day conference in 2017 to look back over the first 30 years of Tasmania’s forest practices system, and to use this perspective to consider directions in forest practices regulation in Tasmania and elsewhere.

In 1987, the Tasmanian Forest Practices Code was released and the state’s first Forest Practices Officers were appointed. The forest practices system has evolved in response to changes in technology, scientific knowledge and community expectations. It is an opportune time to review the system, and consider trends and possibilities in Tasmanian, national and international forest regulation.
The 2017 conference is hosted by the Tasmanian Forest Practices Authority (FPA) and designed for forest workers and managers, forestry regulators, government agencies and environmental NGOs.

There will be many opportunities for delegates to contribute to discussions. International and national speakers include Professor Ben Cashore from Yale University, and Professor Peter Kanowski from the Australian National University.
Local speakers include people with integral roles and different experiences and perspectives on the Tasmanian forest practices system.
