Future Environmental Science Program consultation

Closed 30 Jun 2019

Opened 22 May 2019


The Australian Government has a long track record of investing in environmental research to support evidence-based decision making. The National Environmental Science Program (NESP) is scheduled for completion in 2021. Early planning for a future environmental research program to succeed NESP has commenced. The details of a future program are subject to government decisions.

Why We Are Consulting

This survey builds on the feedback received over the course of NESP. We are now seeking feedback from interested individuals and organisations on key aspects of the program, to help inform the design and administration of a future program.

What Happens Next

A summary of feedback received will be provided at a later date. If you would like to be notified when this becomes available, please include contact details at the end of the survey.
