Protecting Victoria's Environment - Biodiversity 2037
Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037 is the Victorian State Government’s policy response to addressing the decline in biodiversity. The Biodiversity Plan was released in 2017 and presents a long-term vision for Victoria’s biodiversity supported by two goals: Victorians Value Nature, and Victoria’s natural environment is healthy. The Victorian Government committed $86.3 million over the next four years and $20 million ongoing to implement the Biodiversity Plan.
How will the targets be achieved?
The Victorian Government will work with communities to explore the best ways to increase the number of Victorians connecting with nature and acting to protect or enhance biodiversity.
Conservation actions will be more strategic, deliver better value for money and be underpinned by the best available science. This will ensure the Victorian Government's efforts deliver the most benefit for the most species.
A collaborative Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Framework will be developed to track the progress of achieving the Plan’s goals and targets.
