53 regional natural resource management (NRM) organisations are updating existing regional NRM plans to incorporate climate change and adaptation approaches, guide planning for climate change impacts on the land, and help to guide where biosequestration projects should be located in the landscape to maximise the benefits for biodiversity, water and agricultural production.
There are two streams of activity:
- Under Stream 1 regional NRM organisations are updating existing regional NRM plans to help identify where in the landscape climate change adaptation and mitigation activities should be undertaken.
- Under Stream 2 regional-level information in the form of scenarios about the impacts of climate change (water, temperature, storms) is being developed which can be used for medium term regional NRM planning. For more information on Stream 2, contact DCCEE-NRMFundEnquiries@environment.gov.au or visit www.climatechange.gov.au/government/initiatives/regional-nrm-planning-and-climate-change-fund.aspx
