Abstract

The Industry Commission's draft report on Ecologically Sustainable Land Management (September 1997) proposes a general "duty of care" as the centrepiece of a new single unifying statute governing the management of natural resources. This paper reviews the Commission's duty of care concept within the context of the Commission's proposed revised regulatory framework and in the light of pertinent common law cases on the management of natural resources and experience with the existing relevant statutory duties.
