Implementation progress

A framework for undertaking a Strategic Regional Environmental and Baseline Assessment (SREBA) has been developed. The consultation draft was available for public comment from 9 December 2019 to 28 February 2020.

This framework includes the requirement to undertake a social baseline study.

Commencement of the social baseline study and Strategic Regional Assessment components of the SREBA for the Beetaloo sub-Basin are likely to be delayed until on-country consultations can take place due to COVID-19.
