Challenges, policy barriers and global trends
Part of our nature funder group
Today millions of hectares of forests, wetlands, savanna and desert are protected by some form of private land conservation agreement. Join Jody Gunn, CEO of the Australian Land Conservation Alliance, to hear about the different types of private land conservation agreements, gain a clear picture of the challenges facing the sector, learn what policy settings are needed by government to better support land managers, and hear what global trends in private land conservation we should know about in Australia. There will be plenty of time for questions so please join us.
