20 innovative and collaborative projects are receiving funding across the seven Nature Action Zones and are demonstrating natural resource management in practice.

 These projects will provide a number of benefits through a variety of activities specified by the fund, including:

  • landscape scale upland management;  
  • catchment action to improve local water resources and build ecosystem resilience;  
  • implementing sustainable land management practices;  
  • involving communities to help develop undervalued green sterile spaces;  
  • restoring habitats  
  • establishing mechanisms to create green growth opportunities for farmers and land owners.

Projects fact sheets will appear as they become available.
