Landcare Plan for Victoria

Landcare Victoria is committed to developing a plan for Victorian community landcare that will establish directions for our movement over the next decade and beyond.  This is the first time a movement–wide strategic plan has been attempted using a community–driven consultative approach. 

Due for completion in June 2023, the plan will be developed in two broad phases – an initial consultation phase (complete) and the plan development phase over the next six months (to mid 2023).

Draft Landcare Plan for Victoria 

After 12 months of listening to the landcare community and other stakeholders, the draft Landcare Plan for Victoria is now available. The Plan aims to provide a united voice and future vision for the landcare community in Victoria.

During 2022, a desktop review was conducted, and over 400 people participated in engagement activities. From this, a Strategic Priority Statement was prepared, outlining a vision, outcomes, and priority activities for the Plan. The community contributed their feedback to the Strategic Priority Statement during March 2023. The draft Landcare Plan for Victoria has since been drafted, and we are now asking the community to have their say on the draft.

Release of Engagement Findings Report - June 2022

Conducted between February and May 2022 – via workshops, interviews and an online survey – a number of important themes and recommendations emerged from the consultation phase:

Raise the profile of landcare 
Improve advocacy for landcare 
Increase and improve funding for landcare 
Build the capacity of landcare 
Build Traditional Owner Partnerships

This phase was supported by the Victorian Government and involved a wide cross section of the Landcare movement and partners and is intended to help frame the plan development phase

The landcare movement clearly wants to see a more equal and honest relationship between government and the community around addressing the various crises we face (such as adapting to climate change, addressing biodiversity decline and sustainable farming), and greater support for community landcare to help lead our more effective collective response.

Engagement to gather input into potential solutions and ways forward for the challenges and opportunities identified in the 2022 Landcare Plan Engagement Findings Report was held via a series of online workshops in December 2022.

Landcare Plan Literature Review

The Landcare Plan literature review further explores the top three issues identified in the engagement for the development of the Landcare Plan for Victoria. It aims to consider past investigations, studies, and wisdom documented about landcare to draw on these learnings when planning. The issues explored are:

  • Brand recognition and purpose
  • Funding and resources
  • Community engagement and membership
