Our region's plan

Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Plan

The Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Plan 2021-26 places a strong emphasis on building capacity through on-ground works, working with communities on local projects, and building traditional authority and approvals into processes. Elders have been consulted wherever possible to ensure cultural priorities and ideas are included as part of planning and undertaking projects.

The AW Landscape Plan has detailed targets for the condition of the environment and will be delivered by the AW Landscape staff through a diverse range of programs that combine the priorities of the community with the legislative responsibilities of the board. The AW Landscape Plan was approved by the Board and the Minister for Environment and Water in July 2021.

The development of the AW Landscape Plan was undertaken in partnership with traditional owners, Aboriginal organisations, government agencies, research institutions, private sector organisations and – most importantly – the people living in or connected to the region’s communities.

Annual Business Plan

The Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board Business Plan 2021-22 outlines the Board’s expected income and proposed expenditure for the 2021-22 financial year.

The Business Plan also sets out how the Board aims to achieve the activities that are the Board’s focus areas underpinning the five regional priorities.

Healthy Country Planning

Since mid-2014 the AW Landscape Board (formerly known as AW NRM Board) has supported implementation of the Healthy Country Planning facilitation process which focuses on participation and engagement of Aboriginal community members and the inclusion of their traditional knowledge and priorities as the foundation of land management. The resulting Healthy Country Plans form the basis of the AW Landscape Board's approach to managing Country sustainably into the future, while meeting the needs of the people living in the region.

The Far West Coast Healthy Country Plan was completed in November 2016.
