What is landscape management?

The sustainable management of our precious landscapes – soil, water, pest plants and animals, and biodiversity – is the responsibility of all South Australians.

By working together we can support our landscapes to thrive and build resilience to, and recover from, natural disasters like drought and bushfire. Among other benefits, it also helps to promote prosperous long-term businesses, thriving native species and ecosystems and resilient communities. 

The South Australian Government has reformed how our landscapes are managed by putting community at the heart of sustainably managing their regions’ natural resources, with the support and expertise of local landscape boards. 

Underpinning this approach is the Landscape South Australia Act 2019 (the Act).
