National Environmental Protection Council annual report 2 0 1 0 2 0 1 1 203 Q ld N A T IO N A L PO L L U TA N T IN V E N TO R Y Queensland Report to the NEPC on the implementation of the National Environment Protection (National Pollutant Inventory) Measure for Queensland by the Hon. Vicky Darling MP, Minister for Environment, for the reporting year ended 30 June 2011. PART 1 IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NEPM AND ANY SIGNIFICANT ISSUES A new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between the Australian Government and Queensland Government that extends the certainty of state program implementation until 2014. The total funding for state implementation of the program now stands at $420,000 per annum. PART 2 ASSESSMENT OF NEPM EFFECTIVENESS Participation levels Feedback from the community, industry and government Implementation activity effectiveness Public By assessing the number of articles published by Fairfax, News Corporation and the ABC with reference to the National Pollutant Inventory, we can see that media interest has declined over the past 3 years. There were six news items in 201011, twelve in 200910, and nineteen in 200809. Work commenced on the 200910 update of the Queensland Pollutant Emissions Report Card, a publication that has successfully increased public awareness of the NPI.
