Extractions: It has long been recognised that our land uses-including agricultural development-have significantly changed Australia's landscapes and natural systems. However, we have not always appreciated the magnitude of change in the soil, water and nutrient balances, the resultant degradation, the timeframe for these changes to be slowed or reversed, and the costs to the wider Australian community. Changes to the Australian landscape have resulted in the widespread and rapidly growing problem of dryland salinity. Farmers were among the first to be affected, through salinisation of rivers and agricultural land. Biodiversity, as well as regional and urban infrastructure, such as water supply, roads and buildings are now also at risk. The National Land and Water Resources Audit's (Audit) dryland salinity assessment-Australian Dryland Salinity Assessment 2000 has, in collaboration with the States and Territories, defined the distribution and impacts of dryland salinity across Australia. The aggregate values presented below are the best available estimates within the limits of the methods and data used by the State, Territory and research agencies which undertook this risk assessment. Approximately 5.7 million hectares are within regions mapped to be at risk or affected by dryland salinity. It has been estimated that in 50 years' time the area of regions with a high risk may increase to 17 million hectares (three times as much as now).

Natural Heritage Trust Home The $2.7 billion Natural Heritage Trust represents the biggest financial commitment to environmental action by any Commonwealth Government in Australia's history. Since 1996, the Trust has invested much needed funds to help local communities deliver cleaner beaches, healthier waterways, less air pollution, more productive agricultural land and save our threatened species. To date, $1.4 billion has been invested in the Trust and related programs for more than 11 900 projects around Australia. More importantly, an estimated 400 000 Australians have been involved in these projects. In the May 2001 Budget the Commonwealth Government extended the Natural Heritage Trust for a further five years, from 2002-03 to 2006-07. From July this year there will be more than $1billion in funding over the five years to 2006-07 to support the sustainable management of Australia's natural resources. The extension of the Trust provided an ideal opportunity to review the success of the program to date and to determine its future direction. At the October 2002 Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council, State/Territory and Federal Ministers endorsed the

Extractions: Home Travel Countries Global Issues ... Contents Mainland Australia, with an area of 7.69 million sq km, is the largest island and the smallest continent on Earth. It stretches some 3700 km from its most northern to its most southern point, and about 4000 km from east to west. In area, Australia is the sixth largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States of America and Brazil. Its population, however, is relatively small (now estimated at almost 19.5 million). Australias average elevation is 330 m, the lowest of all the continents, and its highest point, Mount Kosciuszko, is only 2228 m. What its landforms lack in height they more than compensate for in variety. The giant monolith Ulu r u (Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territory and the striking beehive mountains of Purnululu (the Bungle Bungles) in Western Australia attract visitors from many parts of the world. The responsibilities of governing such a vast land area are shared by Australias federal government and the governments of the six States and two self-governing Territories. European settlement began in New South Wales in 1788, at Sydney, the nations largest city and host of the 2000 Olympic Games. Sydneys Harbour Bridge and Opera House are national icons, and its airport is the countrys major international gateway.

Contents INNOVATIVE NATION Students at Kormilda College in Darwin, one of Australias largest cross-cultural secondary schools, with Aboriginal people from remote communities making up half its student body. The Rio Tinto Aboriginal Foundation has a 10-year partnership with the college.(Rio Tinto Ltd) Australia has a well-developed education system with participation rates and secondary school completion rates among the highest in the world. Australian governments at all levels are continually reviewing and reforming education and training to address the issues that arise from social and economic change. In many cases, Australian models attract international attention and Australia is involved in cooperating with the development of educational programs in a number of overseas countries. Preschool and school education has a similar structure across Australia, with only slight variations among the States and Territories. Preschool education is commonly one year in length and is not compulsory. School education is thirteen years with some variations in Queensland and Western Australia. It is divided into a preparatory year, primary schooling and secondary schooling. The preparatory year is not compulsory but is almost universally undertaken. School education is compulsory until the age of 15, except in Tasmania, where it is compulsory until age 16. In August 2000, when Australias population reached 19 million, it was estimated that there were 9595 schools in the country. Of these, 6961 (73 per cent) were government schools and 2634 (27 per cent) were non-government.
Extractions: February 2001 Online Local Government opportunity At the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting in November 2000 the Prime Minister obtained the support of State, Territory and Local Government leaders to the first comprehensive national strategy to address two of the most significant issues confronting Australias rural industries, regional communities and our environment - salinity and water quality. The Federal Government committed $700 million over seven years to implement the Action Plan, with this funding to be matched by the States and Territories. The key objectives of the Action Plan are to motivate and enable regional communities to: prevent, stabilise and reverse trends in dryland salinity affecting agricultural production, the conservation of our unique environment and community assets; and improve water quality and secure reliable water supplies for human, agricultural and industrial uses and for the environment. Regional action The plans centrepiece is community driven action to implement accredited regional/catchment management plans.

Extractions: Facsimile: 6 March 1997 At a time when short-term employment schemes and work-for-the-dole programs are making headlines, a new report released today (Friday, March 14) offers a fresh range of solutions to Australia's chronic youth unemployment problem. The report, called Jobs For Young Australians, is the culmination of a two-year study by the University of Adelaide's Social Justice Research Foundation, and was funded by the Australian Youth Foundation. Based on employment data over the period 1988-96, the report highlights unemployment "hot spots" around Australia and makes key recommendations on how to boost youth employment and rebuild the nation. One of the major recommendations, a National Charter for Economic Development, Employment and Citizenship, to be signed by industry, unions, government and the community sector, has already been endorsed by one of Australia's leading employers of young people, The Body Shop (see below for details). The study focused on 64 employment regions in all States and Territories of Australia.
Extractions: Australian Public Access Network Association Incorporated ARBN 081 355 722 Annual Report Mark Purcell It has been an interesting 12 months for APANA. At the start of this period, APANA was "bleeding at the edges". We had lost about 25% of our membership in the previous year. This situation has now stabilised, with our current total membership being up by 5 members on that at the last AGM. It is worth noting that this turn around of fortunes is due mostly to large growth in smaller regions, and the addition of some new regions. Large regions are still suffering from declining membership. It's almost as if there is a limit of around 200 members on the size of a region. Certainly all of the large regions appear to have problems sustaining membership levels in excess of 200 members. On the other end of the spectrum, the Perth region has seen phenomenal growth, due mostly to the efforts of their RC and an aggressive advertising campaign. Other growth for APANA has been through the addition of two new regions, Northern Wollongong and Hunter. There have been a couple of "flame-fests" over the past year, and it should be made clear that the MC refuses to become involved in these.
