Signposts for Australian agriculture (Signposts) is a partnership between industry, government and research organisations. It provides access to economic, social and environmental data specific to an industry in order to inform policy development, strategic decision making and research priorities.
Agriculture is under pressure to demonstrate its performance credentials - in particular its environmental credentials, and to inform the community about its management practices. The agriculture sector recognises that failure to respond to this pressure may constrain future access to natural resources and markets and increase the risk of regulation of agriculture practices.
Since 1997, the National Land & Water Resources Audit has played an important role in the national coordination, collation and reporting of data and information. Under Signposts, Government, industry and research bodies have collaborated in providing strategic direction and in exchanging data and information.
The Signposts reporting framework has been designed to align with other government reporting initiatives, including the evaluation framework for natural resource management programs such as Caring for our Country and Landcare.
