BBB Grazier Support
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.
Gully erosion causes approximately 65 per cent of the fine sediment load that comes from the BBB. The Landscape Remediation program aims to develop fast, effective and economical approaches to gully remediation.
Influencing Other Land Managers
This program will encourage non-graziers who manage, or use land in the BBB to get involved with the project so it can truly be a whole-of-catchment effort. Four councils operate in the catchment and there is major infrastructure such as power lines, roads and rail lines.
Exploring New Incentives
LDC works closely with landholders to investigate a range of approaches that reward good practice, and identify which options to pursue in the BBB. Some practice changes may only require short-term financial assistance, while others may need additional support to help maintain long-term benefits.
The Policy Engagement program aims to support BBB landholders to cut through regulatory red tape that may be preventing them from adopting practice changes.
