Now is the time to invest in Community Landcare!
Community Landcarers are united in our call for targeted investment in Landcare to enhance our capacity to deliver grassroots natural resource management programs.
Let's see Government invest in the communities which are doing the work on the ground. If we are to effectively prepare and respond to climate impacts and natural disasters, government needs to invest in the 6,000 local groups and 160,000 volunteers that are improving environmental and social outcomes in their communities.
