    Abstract

    This report was prepared for the Conservation Commission of Western Australia. In Western Australia, the WA Department of Environment and Conservation prepares management plans for terrestrial conservation reserves for the Conservation Commission, who is responsible for their preparation and submission to the Minister for the Environment for approval (see CALM Act 1984 (WA) for details). This report is part of a broader review of management planning in WA commissioned by the Conservation Commission and undertaken by researchers at the School of Environmental Science, Murdoch University. The objective of this broader review was to:
    1. Finalise the development of a framework for producing good quality management plans that relate to a regional planning area, are concise and can be implemented, and where the framework emphasises both the planning process and product.

    As such, this report reviews management planning and plans in Australia, predominantly using web-accessible material, as well as providing detailed insights into planning practices and products in Queensland, NSW and Victoria obtained through interviews with their staff. The intention is to learn from practice elsewhere and provide a platform for the broader review.

    With the new millennium, protected area management and by association management planning, is being affected by a number of factors including the new paradigm for protected areas (of greater community engagement among other things), increasing interest in and emphasis on how protected areas are ‘governed’, the political imperative of being able to value protected areas and manage for these values, and renewed calls for adaptive management.
