Jo Roberts is the Stakeholder & Investment Coordinator, South East Local Land Services (SE LLS). She will give a presentation and seek comments on SE LLS’ approach to preparing a bid for the Australian Government National Landcare Program (NLP) Phase 2 Regional Land Partnership Fund. The mini forum provides an important opportunity for SE LLS’ consult and involve major partners and community.  SE LLS will prioritise a set of NRM and sustainable agriculture investments for the region in line with AG required outcomes, and, wherever possible, with appropriate partners.

The Regional Land Partnership Fund will provide five year funding from 2018-2023 spread amongst the 56 NRM regions across Australia. Until the 30 June 2018 NLP will continue to fund LLS and community projects. Currently some 17% of SE LLS activity is financed from the current National Landcare Program.  Through a new approach for regional allocations, each region will have the opportunity to prepare a tender to provide or coordinate services to deliver required outcomes for the next phase. At least 20% of each bid must be devoted to community programs.

This is your opportunity to learn about the thinking in SE LLS and K2C partners and to influence the direction of the thinking.

Jo has had many years experience in NRM, NRM monitoring and evaluation and shortly before joining SE LLS, she worked for 10 years in PNG , the Pacific and South east Asia on delivering Australian Government funded international development programs.
