Central Victorian Biolinks has been very fortunate to be awarded funding from the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust to develop a plan for a project that supports collaborative whole-system conservation in Central Victoria.
The funding is enabling CVB to carry out a detailed survey of member community environment groups’ current capacity and capacity building needs to enable them to achieve even greater conservation outcomes.
Findings from the survey will be brought together in a Plan to provide;
- A strategic framework to reach our Vision of ‘People working together to maintain and restore a healthy natural environment from the Grampians to the Victorian Alps and from the Murray River to the Macedon Ranges’.
- Objectives for the next 5 years
- Specific pilot projects
- Baseline data in which CVB can measure the success of its capacity building of member community groups.
Draft recommendations drawn from analysis of the survey information will be discussed by member groups at a CVB meeting in late November in Castlemaine.
