Launch of the Guidebook to Public Land Management in Victoria

‘Monash Law’s Climate Justice Clinic and Gippsland Community Legal Service (GCLS) invite you to celebrate the launch of their Guidebook to Public Land Management in Victoria. This guidebook emerged as a result of the complex issues of public land management raised with GCLS by members of the East Gippsland community following the Black Summer Bushfires of 2019 and 2020. The Climate Justice Clinic and GCLS captured these learnings to strengthen the community legal sector’s capacity to navigate the labyrinth of Victoria’s public land management law and policy and its impact on our rural and regional communities.

The guidebook seeks to inform the preparedness model for future disasters, and supports advocacy for greater public accountability and transparency.
