Forest Monitoring and Improvement Program (FMIP)
Delivering the evidence we need for the forests we want
The Premier has asked the Commission under a terms of reference to independently oversee and advise on a state-wide monitoring, evaluation, reporting and improvement program for NSW forests.
The program will improve the evidence-base for decision-making for forest management across tenures.
This will strengthen the NSW Government’s ability to strategically and adaptively manage forests over time, including state forests, national parks, private native forests and Crown forested land.
