Priorities

An initial task of the Working Group was to identify priority landscapes or themes within theea, which will form the basis of BRP projects.  This process utilised the 40% Cost Effective Actions Maps within the Strategic Management Prospects tool together with other strategic plans (e.g. Conservation Action Plans), knowledge of existing project footprints and activity (e.g. Biodiversity On-Ground Action, Landcare, Weeds and Pests on Public Land) along with the collective expertise of the Working Group members.  

The Working Group will engage stakeholders within these priority landscapes/themes to develop projects that most cost-effectively deliver improved biodiversity outcomes within those landscapes or themes.  Those priority areas are shown below.

Many organisations and community groups who are involved in on-ground biodiversity projects or planning will be able to participate in collaborative project development or contribute to project delivery. The specific processes for engagement and project development are different within each area and is guided by the BRP Working Group. Further information will be posted on this page.

If you wish to contribute ideas as part of collaborative project development please do so by Thursday 12 April 2018. Contact the Customer Service Centre on 136 186 to be directed to your area lead or send an email to biodiversity.plan@delwp.vic.gov.au.
