The Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water Lisa Neville has announced a review of the Victorian Landcare Program, including an evaluation of the past four years of the Victorian Local Landcare Facilitator Initiative.
Community input into the review is encouraged via an online survey via this link
The survey will remain open until 15 September 2015.
The Victorian Landcare Program is the Victorian Government’s program of support to the Landcare community across the state, and includes:
Victorian Landcare Grants (delivered by each CMA),
Regional Landcare Coordinators (based in each CMA) and statewide support team,
Aboriginal Landcare Facilitator,
Victorian Landcare Gateway website,
Victorian Landcare & Catchment Management Magazine,
Victorian Landcare Awards,
Victorian Landcare Facilitators (68 facilitator positions funded by the Victorian Government).
RM Consulting Group has been engaged by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning to undertake this review and evaluation and will be consulting with a range of Landcare representatives during August and September.
The input provided during the consultation will be used to inform recommendations for the Victorian Government’s support for Landcare into the future.
Please forward and promote with your groups and networks.
