Identifying & prioritising future weed threats in biodiversity corridors - November 2014

Identifying and prioritising future weed threats in biodiversity corridors

Project Overview

Weed invasion can be a key barrier to the success of revegetation projects and the establishment of corridors for biodiversity. CSIRO are conducting applied research aimed at determining which weed species pose the biggest threat to these projects and how they might best be controlled. 

In particular, we are looking to prioritise weeds that are likely to become more serious problems in highly connected landscapes in SE Australia in the future so that we can develop improved management approaches and techniques to minimise their impacts.

Aboriginal Land Clean Up and Prevention Program- 2014-5 grant round now open

I’m happy to announce that a new funding round for the Aboriginal Land Clean Up and Prevention program is now open.

EOI Applications close 30 January 2015.

Since 2005 the Aboriginal Land Clean Up and Prevention (ALCUP) program has mobilised and invested more than $1.7 million to support Local Aboriginal Land Councils across NSW as they protect their cultural and natural resources from illegal dumping through clean up, prevention and deterrence.

As part of its Waste Less Recycle More Initiative, the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has developed a new program funding model that supports productive partnerships with all key stakeholders to strategically target problematic illegal dumping issues.

Local Aboriginal Land Councils can seek NSW EPA funding of $5,000 to $50,000 for individual projects of one year's duration. All funded activities must be completed by 30 June 2016.

The priorities for the 2014-15 funding round reflect the NSW EPA’s commitment to deliver an integrated approach to combat illegal dumping through active engagement and collaboration between government, land managers and local communities.

I would greatly appreciate if you could distribute information about the grant through your networks. I am happy to answer any queries directly, and will be running information webinars until the close of January ( please see dates on website).

Information can be found here- http://www.epa.nsw.gov.au/waste/illegaldumpgrants.htm

All the best, Dee Davidian, Project Officer, Illegal Dumping Unit, Waste and Resource Recovery | NSW Environment Protection Authority  | (: (02) 9995 6524 |  8: dee.davidian@epa.nsw.gov.au
