Indigenous Protected Area Funding

(Question No. 1019)

Ms Sharkie asked the Minister for the Environment, in writing, on 15 August 2018:

(1) Why has $15 million of funding commitments been allocated to new Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) under the National Landcare Program until June 2021 when the existing IPA network funding commitments have been extended to June 2023.(2) What plans does the Government have to ensure that these two funding commitments cover the same time span.

Ms Price: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) Funding decisions have been made in accordance with relevant processes under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy and the National Landcare Program.

(2) The Government has stated its commitment to ongoing support for IPAs. Future funding decisions will be made in accordance with budget processes.
