Toward a Yarra River Protection Act

Beginning a journey of community design

The Victorian government has committed to enacting a new law for the Yarra – a Yarra River Protection Act. Environmental Justice Australia (EJA) and the Yarra Riverkeeper Association (YRKA) have joined to work on getting the best outcomes from this commitment for the environment and the community. EJA and YRKA are inviting community and environment groups together in a conversation around the proposed Act. In this paper we suggest a series of issues, themes, and potential directions to consider in development of a legal and institutional framework for Melbourne’s iconic river.
