Abstract

Victorian State forest harvesting regulation is given close scrutiny in its capacity to deliver ecologically sustainable forest management (ESFM). This article examines the current regulation controlling Victorian State forest harvesting from a sustainability perspective. It examines it from four perspectives: (1) balance of the elements of ecological sustainable development, (2) governance, (3) monitoring and measurement, and (4) compliance. Each are examined critically to determine efficacy in progress to the ESFM objective. Using criteria and indicators for sustainability as guidance in examining current regulation, the author provides support for a new regulatory model utilising adaptive/responsive regulatory structures.
