Degradation: the cost is millions

Driver, M. (1986) Degradation: the cost is millions. Elders Weekly, 20 March 1986. p. 8 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Land degradation is recognised as Australia's most serious environmental problem, according to the Federal Minister for Arts, Heritage and Environment, Barry Cohen. Mr Cohen said Australia depended much of its economic well being and export earnings on the agricultural and pastoral industries and viewed dryland degradation and rehabilitation as matters of great concern. He also said that the responsibility for ensuring land was not over exploited could not be left entirely to individuals, and said that governments must play a major support role.
