The new Landscape South Australia Act 2019 will replace the Natural Resources Management Act 2004 as the key framework for managing the state’s land, water, pest plants and animals, and biodiversity across the state.

Eight new regional landscape boards will administer the new Act. A new entity Green Adelaide, will bring an integrated approach to managing Adelaide’s urban environment.

Presiding Members have been appointed to lead each of the new regional landscape boards by the Minister for Environment and Water. They will also be responsible for administering the NRM Act until it ceases and the new Act fully commences on 1 July 2020.

Note: This initiative is not youth specific but addresses priorities identified by young South Australians.
