Senate Select Committee on Agricultural and Related Industries Submission

Global environmental changes (GEC) such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and degradation of ecosystems on land and in the oceans are the major determinants of sustainability and of future population health and survival. In medical terms these are the life support systems for humanity.

These determinants are enmeshed in a wide set of ‘global changes’ typified by the growing scale, speed and intensity of changes in social, economic and environmental conditions in the world.
