NSW Landcare Program 2019 – 2023
The NSW Landcare Program (2019 – 2023) is a $22.4 million investment co-delivered by Landcare NSW and NSW Local Land Services to unlock the potential of the extensive volunteer network and Landcare movement across NSW.
The Program is a continuation of the previous Local Landcare Coordinator Initiative (2015 – 2019), a number of previous Landcare Support Programs and regional Landcare investment made through National Landcare Program and Catchment Action over the last four years and beyond.
The Program is comprised of a number of components:
- Local and Regional Landcare Coordinators;
- A Community of Practice Component;
- People Development;
- Aboriginal Program; and
- Program Management and Support.
The Regional Landcare Coordinator is a new role with 11 positions across the state-wide network and 72 part time Local Landcare Coordinators who support the 60,000-strong volunteer Landcare network across NSW.
Hosted by local organisations such as Landcare groups, Councils and industry organisations, the coordinators are a key resource that underpin local and regional communities of practice and the capacity of Landcarers to participate in on ground actions.
The Program is a collaborative endeavour of Local Land Services and Landcare NSW, supported by the NSW Government and overseen by a Joint Management Committee.
A memorandum of understanding underpins the Committee’s operations and those of the Program.
