Landscape-scale conservation approaches have achieved currency in Australia as a means to increase ecosystem resilience and address the diverse causes of biodiversity decline. Governance plays an important role in supporting a shift to larger scale approaches, which require the collective action of individuals and organisations at multiple levels of governance with the authority, capacity and responsibility to act.

This seminar outlines the findings of an institutional diagnostic for two contrasting case study regions, the Australian Alps and Tasmanian Midlands. Using adaptive governance as a foundation, Sarah will also describe several options to address these research findings and provide governance settings that enable better biodiversity outcomes. This research is part of the Landscapes and Policy Hub, a nationally funded, interdisciplinary research hub developing tools, techniques and policy options to integrate biodiversity into regional scale planning.
