The LDC project will build on existing local initiatives
MORE than 90 per cent of land in the BBB is used for grazing. The BBB Grazier Support program aims to provide all local graziers with education, training, technical support and incentives to help them adopt improved land management practices.
Approaches will include:
- providing property mapping, and training activities designed to encourage graziers to get involved – with a particular focus on those who have not previously engaged;
- engaging with and supporting land managers to undertake activities to develop their skills and knowledge and implement practice change. This includes working with individuals and fostering peer, demonstration and cluster groups;
- delivering a comprehensive technical advice and support program that works with individuals and groups; and
- supporting landholders to adopt industry best practice,
and establishing systems to reward and recognise these achievements.
