Revisiting ‘Working across jurisdictions’

The devastating 1926 Australian east coast bushfires were a critical point in history which highlighted the importance of governments collaborating across jurisdictions. At that time, Victoria and New South Wales worked together to establish insurance populations of species to ensure their ongoing survival.

In this special re-run episode, we revisit the conversation we brought to our listeners in May 2022, as a collaboration between IPAA Victoria’s Young IPAA Network and IPAA ACT’s Future Leaders Committee. It was about working across jurisdictions on environmental policy and regulation.

The conversation was hosted by Dr Gordon de Brouwer PSM, Secretary of APS Reform. His guests were Kate Lynch, First Assistant Secretary of the Environment Protection Division at DCCEEW (the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water), and Warrick McGrath, Director at Biodiversity Regulatory Reform, Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning.

Discussed in this episode:

  • The importance of relationships and trust.
  • Collaborating across governments while maintaining jurisdictional loyalty.
  • The role of local government.
  • Tips for working with stakeholders on environmental policies.
