Summary: The Tasmanian Weeds Action Fund (WAF) is a $5 million State Government initiative, funded for five years from 2018/19. The funds provided by the WAF will be invested with farmers and other community organisations to tackle weeds that are impacting valuable agricultural and environmental assets. CCA have partnered with NRM North and NRM South to deliver Stage Two of the fund over the next three years, the fund will be available state-wide, and those interested in seeking funding should register their interest now.
The WAF aims to:
- Provide a more strategic and targeted approach to tackling high priority weeds impacting valuable agricultural and environmental assets;
- Improve the productive value of agricultural land and protect Tasmania’s natural values by removing the harmful effects of serious weed threats;
- Support and co-invest with landowners, local government and the broader community to make sustainable, long-term and effective actions to address high priority weeds with eradication as a key objective; and
- Encourage the concept of “shared responsibility” for weed management and biosecurity in general.
