Queensland Government Investing in Practice Change to Support Natural Resource Management
The Queensland Government is investing over $61 Million over four years into improving the quality of the state’s land, vegetation, water and reef resources as part of the Natural Resource Investment Program.
A significant component of this funding is directed towards Queensland Natural Resource management bodies which work from the Cape to the far south-west of the state. Regional delivery organisations are well-placed to align and integrate efforts in partnerships between government, the community, local Indigenous people and industry. These collaborations support capacity to deliver natural resource management outcomes through improving sustainable and resilient landscapes.
The Queensland Natural Resource Investment Program is supporting work in priority catchments to drive on-ground improvements. This is achieved through various funding components, most applicably for the River Symposium, practice change along rivers, creeks and streams. Successful projects are required to build continuous improvement and adaptive management principles into their design. Co-benefits associated with this work to other sectors is acknowledged and supported.
