Land management initiatives
- The development of farm management systems (FMS) is a key industry and whole-of-government initiative for property planning. Landholders can use these voluntary property and business level management processes to identify and manage risks (particularly environmental ones) that may occur as a result of farming operations.
- Blueprint for the Bush is a Queensland Government initiative aimed at helping landholders adapt to changing conditions, address rural issues and needs, and improve the sustainable management of the state's natural resources.
- The Cape York Peninsula Heritage Act 2007 is a significant land management initiative that reaches common ground between Indigenous and non–Indigenous people, and between conservation and development interests. The Act creates a framework for ecologically sustainable development in the region.
- The Delbessie Agreement (State Rural Leasehold Land Strategy), which is a plan for the sustainable use, protection and rehabilitation of rural leasehold land is the result of a partnership between the Queensland Government, AgForce Queensland and the Australian Rainforest Conservation Society.
- The Public Lands Strategy delivers one of the Queensland Government's commitments under the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan 2009. It focuses on best practice land management to help prevent pollutants from public land in reef catchments entering the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. A technical background report (PDF, 2.4M)* has also been prepared which provides details about the development of the strategy.
