Supporting sustainable primary production
Sustainable agriculture industry support
The Hills and Fleurieu Landscape Board acknowledges the strong links which exist between healthy functioning ecosystems and sustainable primary production. The maintenance of both is fundamental to social, environmental and economic well-being.
With much of the region’s land use attributed to primary production, farming represents a critical sector when addressing the management of natural resource issues and strategic investment for productive and environmental outcomes.
The majority of rural land in the region is privately owned, so management decisions of landholders are critical to protecting and improving the condition of natural resources.
