Australia’s land is under increasing pressure as global demand for food and fibre increases and land use competition grows. There are ten food and land use transitions the world can adopt to better manage these challenges and opportunities.
The Natural Capital Roadmap presents the ideas of over 300 leaders in farming, forestry, natural resource management, conservation, finance, policy, research and government on how to progress the natural capital agenda in Australia.
In early June 2019, the Land Use Futures team – working with NAB and the Queensland State Government – ran the Natural Capital Summit, as part of ClimateWeek QLD 2019.
Land use futures has launched a new web interactive that explores the different ways Australia’s land is used and managed. It forms part of the Land Use Futures program, which is working to develop integrated pathways and a roadmap for sustainable food and land use in Australia.
From March to May 2019, the Land use futures team held workshops in capital cities across Australia. These brought together over 150 people from almost 100 organisations, including landowners, agricultural industry representatives, sustainable agriculture consultants, banks, insurers, impact investors, policy makers, natural resource managers and research and development organisations.
