Building capacity for sustainable land management lies at the heart of Southern Gulf NRM’s Regional Agricultural Landcare Facilitator (RALF) project. The project contributes to developing a skilled and capable Landcare and farming community within the Southern Gulf region. It aims to increase community engagement and participation in NRM, building capacity, knowledge and skills to better manage natural resources. There is a strong focus on promoting the Landcare ethic and sustainable grazing practices to graziers. Landcare, production and community groups are assisted to seek funding, membership and resources for NRM activities and to build their capacity and skills. The RALF is an “enabler” who supports the regional community to achieve these outcomes.
This project is supported by Southern Gulf NRM, through funding from the Australian Government National Landcare Program
