The Government's focus for the environment is to deliver practical change at the local level. The Clean Land Plan will help clean up and revegetate urban environments including creek and river banks, with the help of the Green Army and reforms to strengthen Landcare. The Government will also simplify environmental approvals to cut duplication and end delays, while maintaining high environmental standards.
The Australian Government’s Green Army provides real and practical solutions to combat land degradation, clean up our waterways and re-vegetate and conserve habitats.
A new National Landcare Programme merges existing Caring for our Country and Landcare funding to create a single programme based on three principles: simple, local and long-term.
20 Million Trees
The Australian Government has committed $50 million over four years to the 20 Million Trees Programme, with funding to commence from 2014-15. The programme will involve competitive grants, delivered by individuals and organisations, and larger-scale plantings, delivered by national service providers.
The Australian Government is committed to protecting Australia’s unique biodiversity and protecting our nationally threatened species. With the appointment of Australia's first Threatened Species Commissioner, conservation efforts and investments will be better targeted, coordinated and effective.
