There are three phases in the consultation process.
Stage 1 (Develop) involved taking draft elements of the Framework to key industry stakeholders, including industry policy groups, advocacy groups and service providers, as well as the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment. This stage was completed in March and April 2020 and its findings were used to shape this First Draft Sheep Sustainability Framework
Stage 2 (Design) involved taking the First Draft Framework to industry stakeholders as well as customers, retailers, special interest groups, government and investors for additional development.
Broader consultation is currently underway for Stage 3 (Decide) via an online survey. Feedback from this consultation will further refine the document to create the final Sheep Sustainability Framework.
