Environment Trust Fund

Australia’s natural forests provide a range of environmental, cultural, social, and economic benefits, however Australia’s forests, the biodiversity and communities that rely on them are under pressure from climate change, invasive species, wildfires and competing land-use. The Forest Environment Fund was established to encourage evidence-based approaches to active and adaptive forest management, wildfire mitigation, sustainable forestry and integrating traditional knowledge and practices with scientific evidence.

The fund benefits society by through providing grants to support research, education, and training for the purposes of improving outcomes for Australia’s natural forests, the knowledge and skills of the people who manage them and all the diverse values that rely on them.

Australia’s natural forests research, education and training grants

Forestry Australia will issue a call for applications for the Australia’s natural forests research, education and training grant program in early 2024.
