The national biodiversity conservation prospectus, One Land - Many Stories: Prospectus of Investment (the Prospectus), presents the Australian Government's vision for protecting Australia's valuable and most vulnerable environments.
The Prospectus will join the parts of the Land Sector Package that are administered by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities and the Sustainable Environment stream of Caring for our Country in a comprehensive narrative of investment.
The Prospectus provides an overarching framework of the Australian Government's priorities for funding conservation and improving natural resource management in 2013—14. This Prospectus articulates the places (target areas), national priorities (investment themes) and the available grant funding to guide the development of project proposals in the 2013—14 round of biodiversity conservation and natural resource management investment across the Australian Government environment portfolio.
The Australian Government recognises that a diverse range of responses are required to meet the challenges and opportunities posed by improving conservation and natural resource management outcomes. Regional difference also impacts on the reality of the challenges and opportunities that each community faces and the particular responses required. For these reasons, the government will be investing in our environmental future through a range of programs.
This document provides information detailing the range of grant programs available so that you can assess the program/s that are the most appropriate to support your conservation and natural resource management activities. There is also potential for applicants to source funds from more than one grants stream for a project with diverse activities and outcomes. This Prospectus is supported by a series of grants program guidelines. The guidelines outline the specific requirements of each program (including eligibility) and provide information on how to apply for relevant grants. Grant guidelines will be made available over the coming months.
