    Working with Nature Report - Press Release

    working with nature 320Land Management and Conservation Economic Stimulus proposal
    In March 2021, more than 100 conservation, farming and land management organisations came together to release the report, Working with Nature. This report outlines how thousands of workers can be employed to deliver practical conservation and land management work across the country - delivering targeted economic recovery support to regional communities while leaving lasting benefits for the environment, tourism, farm businesses and local communities.

    Landcare NSW added our community voices to this 100-strong coalition, calling for Federal Government investment in a land management and environmental stimulus package post-COVID19.

     

    The Working With Nature report outlines the diverse economic, social and environmental benefits associated with government investment in conservation and land management, illustrated with case studies, and outlines opportunities for further investment in hard-hit regional communities. The report is based on an economic recovery proposal supported by over 100 conservation, farming and land management organisations, which advocates for thousands of workers to be employed to deliver practical conservation and land management work across the country.

    Letter from Adrian Zammitt,
     CEO Landcare NSW

    Dear Landcarers

    Landcare NSW has added our communities' voices to a 100-strong coalition of land management organisations, calling for Federal Government investment in a land management and environmental stimulus package, post-COVID19. We have been making this case for several months; many of you have written letters and talked to Federal Members to seek their support. The Pew Charitable Trusts have led the campaign and done an extraordinary job with the assistance of the National Landcare Network.  

    Last week they released a new report, website and press release to keep this issue on the agenda. See the link here: Working With Nature

    Can you please share this information in your communities and through all your communications platforms? It’s critical that grassroots Landcarers make their voices heard. 

    Expenditure is approved by the Expenditure Review Committee: Scott Morrison, Josh Frydenberg, Michael McCormack, Matthias Corman and Greg Hunt. You might wish to ask your local Federal Member to make representations to these key decision makers. If you are in the electorates of Sussan Ley, Scott Morrison or Michael McCormack, it’s even more important they hear from their local Landcare community.

    Our goal is to send a positive message that Landcare wants to be part of the solution to help create jobs, and stimulate the economy while helping farmers, the environment and local communities.

    Thank you for your support. I would appreciate you keeping us up to do date with your efforts and any responses or feedback you may have.

    If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at administration@landcarensw.org.au or 0458 168 225.
