Regional Land Partnerships is investing $450 million over five years from July 2018 to June 2023, delivering national priorities at a regional and local level.
The Government is firmly committed to national coverage for the program, and as a result 50 service providers are engaged through to 2023 to deliver projects in 54 regions to benefit our environment, our farms, and our communities. (see more Regional Land Partnerships successful projects) These projects are connecting efforts for the recovery of species identified under the Threatened Species Strategy, protecting threatened ecological communities, and reducing threats to our globally-important wetlands and world heritage sites. Projects are also improving on-farm soil, biodiversity and vegetation, and increasing the capacity of our farms to adapt to climate change and evolving market demands.
