Key partners join forces to deliver Regional Land Partnerships outcomes on the North Coast
03 September 2018
A major milestone was reached last week when five key partners signed a Memorandum of Understanding establishing a Consortium to deliver outcomes under the Regional Land Partnerships component of the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program Phase 2.
North Coast Local Land Services was recently announced as the successful Service Provider to deliver five-year outcomes for Regional Land Partnerships program in the North Coast Management Unit. Joining North Coast Local Land Services in delivering these outcomes are Big Scrub Landcare, Northern Rivers Fire and Biodiversity Consortium, Lord Howe Island Board and Conservation Volunteers Australia.
For the next five years, this Consortium will be responsible for the delivery of projects such as stabilising the population of the critically endangered Eastern Bristlebird, protecting the World Heritage values of Lord Howe Island and Gondwana Rainforests from invasive species and increasing the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices in the Richmond River catchment.
The North Coast Regional Land Partnerships Consortium looks forward to partnering with the Australian Government and implementing projects in conjunction with the North Coast community. Encouraging Landcare, industry groups, research bodies and Aboriginal participation in the planning and delivery of projects is a priority for the newly established North Coast Regional Land Partnerships Consortium.
The Consortium is supported by North Coast Local Land Services through funding from the Australian Government.
