Regional Reserves Climate Resilience

Collaborative regional reserve management for climate resilience – a Community of Practice

Develop and support a collaboration / project that moves toward a more connected, regional approach to managing and restoring native vegetation and other natural assets such as wetlands, rivers and parks.

DECCA regional staff are keen to work with a range of land managers and practitioners (including, for example, Trust for Nature, Greening Australia, Western Port Biosphere, Greening the West, and others) to set up a pilot regional collaboration project.
