Compendium of Sustainable Agriculture Programs

This compendium has been prepared for the Australian Landcare Council as a resource document to inform the work of its Agricultural Sustainability Working Group on the range of government and industry programs and activities in supporting the development and adoption of more sustainable agriculture production systems. Accordingly, it focuses on programs and activities of governments and related agencies and industry corporations. It does not cover the wide range of activities undertaken by agribusiness industries providing commercial services to the farm sector. Similarly it deals only briefly with the activities of non-government organisations active in the field of nature and biodiversity conservation.
