Conservation, with lifestyle
The federal Department of Environment and Energy designs and implements the Australian Government’s policies and programmes to protect and conserve the environment, water and heritage and promote climate action. The environmental framework is delivered under four pillars: clean air, clean water, clean land, and national heritage.
The Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme is investing $1 billion nationally over four years from 2014-15 to help drive sustainable agriculture as well as supporting the protection, conservation and rehabilitation of Australia’s natural environment. The National Landcare Programme supports many of Trust for Nature’s regional projects around Victoria.
