Title:
Towards national reporting on agricultural land use change in Australia

Description:
The report describes changes in key land uses (grazing, cropping and nature conservation) over the period 1992-93 to 2005-06, nationally and at the regional scale. It draws heavily on the ABARES time series of national scale land use maps and Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) agricultural statistics as these are the most reliable and consistent for reporting on land use change at the national level. The strength of the ABARES national scale land use maps is that they combine ABS agricultural statistics with other land use information into one complete spatial dataset for Australia. The ABARES national scale land use maps are used for broad-scale land use assessments and for strategic planning and evaluation. This report builds on the ABARES Science and Economics Insights Report Landscapes in transition: tracking land use change in Australia (Lesslie et al. 2011) in scoping our capacity to consistently report on land use change at the national level using currently available national datasets. It outlines the current extent of agricultural land use in Australia, and describes how agricultural land use is changing. It highlights the dynamic nature of agricultural land use and the pressures for change from alternative land uses. Changes in some land uses, such as grazing, cropping, nature conservation and plantation forestry as well as changes in peri-urban environments, are also discussed.
