$2M Grant for ANU to Transform Farm Conservation

6 March 2017

The Australian National University (ANU) has received a $2 million grant from The Ian Potter Foundation to find ways to improve environmental management of farmlands. The project aims to improve environmental, economic and social outcomes in rural Australia by providing data to help farmers make decisions and adopt practices that are ecologically sound, and focused on their farms' long-term sustainability. The project aims to demonstrate that a farm that is better managed environmentally, is better off financially and together these can improve farmers mental health and well-being. CMHR will be leading the mental health and wellbeing component of the project.
