Resources and Information for Coordinators and host organisations involved in the NSW Landcare Program

Regional Community of Practice

In addition to providing host organisations with Local and Regional Landcare Coordinators, the NSW Landcare Enabling Program also provides support to assist the Landcare and NRM community build the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the Program’s objectives,

Financial support will be provided for regional activities identified and via the online Expression of Interest that help organisations meet the objectives of the Program.

Funding is available to each region and has been set aside for use as required over the duration of the Program. The Program would prefer that Regional Landcare Coordinators, in conjunction with the host organisations, local coordinators and partners, identify needs and prioritise activities as part of developing and reviewing the regional priorities.

Regional Landcare Coordinators are invited to submit an application for funding to support regional community of practice events in their region, to help meet the Program's objectives, which are:

1. Capacity - improve the capacity of Landcarers with the knowledge, skills and experience to produce effective outcomes.

2. Efficiency - produce an increased volume of Landcare activity relative to the resource outputs.

3. Increased self sustenance - leverage investment to attract a diverse range of funding sources.

A guidelines document will be published at this site shortly. In the interim, if you have any questions regarding RCoP funding, please contact State Community of Practice Coordinator, Melanie Tyas at mtyas@landcarensw.org.au or on 0479 136 344. 

Once you have completed a Regional Community of Practice event funded by the Program, you will be required to complete a report and an activity evaluation within 30 days of the event/activity.

An event evaluation form will be available at this site in the coming weeks.
