The Agriculture Stewardship Package is now managed by the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water.
About Agriculture Biodiversity Stewardship Package
Australian agriculture depends on a biodiverse and well-managed natural resource base. Agricultural land managers play a key role in environmental management. They are responsible for managing 58% of our landmass.
The Agriculture Stewardship Package is working to develop market arrangements and kick start private investment in farm biodiversity and other sustainability opportunities.
Key partners are the Australian National University (ANU), National Farmers’ Federation and Natural Resource Management (NRM) organisations in our six pilot regions.
