SA landscape boards selected as regional delivery partners for Australian Government agencies

News article |

South Australia’s eight regional landscape boards have been appointed to a national panel of regional delivery partners (RDPs) set up by the Australian Government.

The panel will be used to deliver on-ground environmental protection, sustainable agriculture and natural resource management activities across Australia.

Activities could include revegetation to restore threatened species habitat, fire management action, erosion control and feral animal management.

Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board General Manager Jonathan Clark said that as RDPs for South Australia, regional landscape boards are now in an even stronger position to attract and channel Australian Government funds into projects that help South Australians care for land, water and nature.

“Our appointment to the panel speaks to our capabilities and success as a system of boards. This announcement comes as regional landscape boards finalise their 5-year funding arrangements with the Australian Government.

“These arrangements will see more than $50 million from the Natural Heritage Trust flow into South Australia for practical on-ground projects to support environmental protection, sustainable agriculture and natural resource management,” he said.

The Panel of Regional Delivery Partners is available to all Australian Government departments to access valuable on-ground natural resource management services.
