Degradation rate a widespread problem

(1982) Degradation rate a widespread problem. The Farmers Weekly, 27 October 1982. p. 18 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The Australian Standing Committee has concerns about the rate at which land degradation is evolving as a widespread problem throughout Australia. Soil Conservation commissioners from all states and territories, as well as observers from Papua New Guinea and New Zealand are members of the Australian Standing Committee. The main role of the committee is to ensure there is sufficient liaison and co-operation between states and the Commonwealth in working toward overcoming land degradation problems in Australia.
