Landcare ACT Releases Landscape Management Agenda

Dated 13 September 2016

Landcare ACT, the ACT’s peak body for land stewardship groups, today released its seven point agenda for strengthening the resilience of the ACT’s urban and rural landscapes.

Landcare ACT is proposing a new overarching natural resource management strategy, to provide a clear road-map for the future and which addresses gaps in soil management, agriculture, community education and capacity building. Landcare ACT is also calling for a review of the governance framework for ACT natural resource management, to establish an independent regional body to facilitate stronger community involvement.
