Caring for our Country is an ongoing Australian Government initiative that seeks to achieve an environment that is healthier, better protected, well managed, resilient and provides essential ecosystem services in a changing climate.
The business plan sets out the targets for investment in 2012–13 to ensure we stay on track to achieving the government's five-year Caring for our Country outcomes. The business plan provides guidance to potential applicants on the types of proposals which the Australian Government is seeking to fund to address these targets.
