Overwhelming support for National Landcare Programme

Feb 05, 2015

In  late January, the BMRG conducted five information sessions across the region to gauge the community’s feedback for a preferred option of delivery of the new National Landcare Programme (NLP).  One of the precepts of the NLP is that 20% of this funding is to be delivered by the NRM bodies to local, onground projects and related activities that are delivered by, or directly engage with, local communities; including Landcare groups, agriculture groups, community groups and individual land managers.  Over 70 stakeholders participated in the sessions, with a clear majority supporting the current delivery model.  Under this, the BMRG will continue to liaise with community and deliver the funding through existing channels and arrangements.
