The Climate Smart Agricultural Development project was delivered in partnership with seven councils. Council partners were Moira Shire Council, Benalla Rural City Council, Greater Shepparton City Council, Campaspe Shire Council, Strathbogie Shire Council, Mansfield Shire Council, Murrindindi Shire Council and the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority, with project management support provided by the Goulburn Broken Greenhouse Alliance.
Who funded the project?
The Victorian State Government funded the project with a grant from the then Victorian Adaptation and Sustainability Partnership Program. Participating organisations also contributed in-kind and funds towards the project.
How was the project managed?
The members of the project convened a steering committee to govern the project. This committee consisted of one to two staff from each participating organisation, from across a variety of organisational areas including economic development, environment, and planning. The steering committee met approximately every two months during project delivery and was tasked with ensuring project outputs were compliant with the funding deed and met the expectations of partner organisations. The steering committee's role was supported by the Alliance, Deakin University and Spiire.
