On-Ground Works

The monitoring and evaluation of on-ground works projects implemented by the Land Resources Program occurs at three levels:

  • The location, type and objective of completed works projects (short term);

  • The impact of works on reducing the incidence and severity of associated threatening process (medium term);

  • The impact of the works on improving the condition of associated environmental assets (long term).

More detail on a selection of on-ground works, monitoring and evaluation projects delivered by the program is provided below.

The Land Protection Incentive Scheme (LPIS) is helping Mallee farmers to reduce the impact from dryland agricultural land on regional assets such as native flora and fauna, rivers, wetlands and waterway, cultural heritage and both irrigation and dryland agricultural land.  A Fact Sheet detailing the type and location of recently implemented projects will be available soon.

Community Grants have supported local organisations to implement a wide range of projects.  These include pest plant and animal control, revegetation and remnant protection works, education and training activities.

The Quantification of the Impact of Land Management Practices on Priority Remnant Vegetation across the Dryland Mallee Landscape project developed and validated a methodology to determine the impact of stock containment areas and stock exclusion fencing on the quality of remnant vegetation.

The Monitoring the Impact and Effectiveness of On-ground Interventions Program developed and implemented a methodology to determine the condition of the asset and the incidence and severity of the threat both prior to and after the implementation of a range of on ground works.
