A Working Group has proposed a national approach to deliver a range of cost-effective national actions to reduce the impact of system-wide threats that are underlying causes of decline in biodiversity.

The approach focuses on three system-wide threats to biodiversity, where existing responses should be enhanced and where national scale attention is needed for new actions:

Drivers of loss of habitat values and decline in ecosystem function [ major issue for koala survival]

Spread of invasive pests, weeds and diseases

Climate change impacts on biodiversity.[major issue for koala survival]


The approach identifies the highest priority actions, actions that maintain natural systems, actions that advance ecologically sustainable natural resource management, actions that will improve institutional frameworks for delivery, and actions that will embed biodiversity conservation into the economic and social fabric of Australia. Twenty-six actions have been identified to address the three system-wide threats.
