Australian Government – National Landcare Program
The National Landcare Program is a key part of the Australian Government’s long-standing commitment to natural resource management.
As a nationwide effort, the National Landcare Program contributes to address problems such as:
- loss of vegetation
- soil degradation
- the introduction of pest weeds and animals
- changes in water quality and flows and
- changes in fire regimes.
The Australian Government is investing about $1.1 billion to deliver targeted national priority actions through the National Landcare Program Phase Two (from July 2018 to June 2023)
National Landcare Network
Under the National Landcare Progam, $2 million has been invested in developing community Landcare through the establishment of the National Landcare Network. This has supported the building of a Landcare network in the NT, which has culminated in the formation of Landcare NT by community volunteers.
