Biodiversity underpins the health of our intimately connected natural and managed systems, especially agriculture.
Biodiversity underpins the health of our intimately connected natural and managed systems, especially agriculture. Biodiversity is under increased pressure from climate variability and change, and rapid changes in land and water use. After thirteen years of drought, the driest period on record, the message is clear: leadership is required to equip people, enterprises and environments adapt to these change.
This Biodiversity Strategy for the Goulburn Broken Catchment 2010-2015 is the current step in the journey of improving the resilience of ecosystems so that they can continue to provide habitat for flora and fauna and provide ecosystem services for more immediate human needs such as the filtering of water, the pollinating of crops and the provision of aesthetically pleasing places to live and play.
