The partnership aims to develop and mainstream an innovative nature-based solution, Green Firebreaks, and undertake a rewilding program to increase landscape resilience and reduce risk for people and nature in a changing climate.
Key components of the partnership will include collaborating with First Nations Peoples to engage in two-way knowledge sharing, and working with communities to demonstrate how they can implement Green Firebreaks in their local areas to mitigate bushfire risk.
This partnership recognises that climate change is an ‘all hands on deck’ scenario and we need many different types of expertise, ideas and practical knowledge to solve these global crises – engaging with diverse stakeholders will be critical to developing mitigation strategies to tackle climate change.
NAB Foundation’s Environmental Resilience Fund has been established to help support practical projects that build environmental resilience to natural disasters and climate change.
“The NAB Foundation holds great value in partnering with Greening Australia and WWF-Australia on this project. The project will help strengthen the natural environment against natural disasters and showcase the impact of large scale collaborative efforts tackling climate change.”
