Cape York NRM Regional Investments: 2013-14 Environment
This program funded through the Department of Natural Resources and Mines, delivered integrated management of weeds, pests animals and fire, led by community and Indigenous groups to build Natural Resource Management skills and knowledge across Cape York. The project improves collaborations, governance and community capacity for managing natural resources to maintain ecosystem resilience and health in the Cape York NRM region. The program links the activities with the Regional Investment for Agriculture Stream sub-projects through the programs of Fire, Water, Integrated Pest Management, Soils, Livelihoods and Country and Biodiversity. The first eighteen months of delivery was aligned with the Stream 1 of the Regional NRM Planning for Climate Change Fund. The activities conducted in the first year focused on learning by doing, a strong engagement component and planning across tenures and catchments, with the intended outcome of better coordination and understanding among organisations and landholders. This was delivered through targeted projects that aligned with community identified priorites and a small grants program.
