Abstract

Queensland has many sites of significant ecological and cultural value, some requiring specialised regulation, and is home to many thousands of native species of animals, plants and insects found nowhere else on the planet. It continues to face significant challenges as to land use and the exploitation of natural resources.

This important new book provides a detailed analysis of the legal framework in place in Queensland dealing with environment, planning and climate matters. It utilises a case study approach to trace the implementation of environmental law into practice.

The authors examine the fragmented nature of environmental governance and the judicial application and interpretation of the law. They assess the effectiveness of this framework in the light of environmental principles. In doing so, they identify the challenges of current governance tools available to manage conflicting interests in land and resource use and discuss legal and policy options to address these issues. The jurisdiction-specific coverage makes this book an ideal resource for students of environmental law both in law schools and in disciplines such as engineering, environmental management and natural resource and planning, and it is essential reading for practitioners, government and researchers working in the area.
