Implementation Progress

Government is developing a framework for conducting a SREBA.

A strategic SIA is considered through the Social Cultural Economic baseline guidance note in the SREBA framework. The government will require the scope of a SREBA considers the impact on shared and community infrastructure and identifies options to address any potentially adverse effects. This analysis will be shared with affected communities and industry so that the analysis can be considered in the development and assessment of individual project proposals. The information will also be used by government to inform policy work and planning decisions.
