Australias environment has received a mixed report card, with experts saying there needs to be a more strategic approach to policies for a sustainable future. While built, marine and Antarctic environments, and natural and cultural heritage are in generally good condition, things are deteriorating in the more populated coastal areas and urban sprawl, the State of the Environment report says. Coastal areas are most at risk because they bear the brunt of a range of simultaneous pressures, including growing populations, habitat loss, invasive species, and the widespread effects of climate change. The changing climate exacerbates other environmental pressures. These risks are also increased by a lack of timely action before tipping points are reached. The impacts of climate change are likely to worsen, and some of these impacts may be irreversible, states the report, which was released on Tuesday. The independent report, written by 18 top scientists, criticises the lack of an overarching national policy establishing a clear vision to protect and sustainably manage Australias environment to 2050. Governments at different levels do a poor job of collaborating on and co- ordinating policies, the report says. It calls for national leadership and specific programs with reliable funding to preserve Australias unique environments and deal with climate change. The pressure is on all of us and governments in particular to address those challenges, report co-author Ian Cresswell said yesterday.
