The Department of Agriculture is jointly responsible for the National Landcare Programme with the Department of the Environment. The National Landcare Programme is a key part of the Australian Government’s investment in managing our natural resources.

The National Landcare Programme is comprised of two funding streams: national and regional. Over the next four years (2014-15 to 2017-18), $1 bi​llion will be invested in projects that address sustainable agriculture and environmental issues.

By investing in local and regional projects that deliver against the Programme’s Strategic Objectives and Outcomes, the Australian Government recognises the important contribution of local communities and regional natural resource management organisations in assisting Australia to meet its national and international obligations.
