e.g. Tablelands The Tablelands community successfully balances profitable agriculture with a high standard of environmental management and conservation. The community is diverse and connected with producers, small block owners and urban people all working together to enhance biodiversity, improve water quality, reduce impacts of invasive species and maintain the clean air and clean water of the landscape.
e.g. Lachlan Plains The Lachlan Plains have improved land management systems with technology that improves both production and conservation. The mining industry, corporate agriculture and family farms have learnt to work together, providing a diverse economic base and ecosystem services for the region. Corporate companies are actively involved in the communities. There remains a strong sense of place and connection to the country. Cultural diversity is a valued part of the community and Aboriginal culture is respected as part of a shared Australian history. The landscape has connected habitat, improved riparian health and provides valuable outdoor recreation. Urban communities are consuming local products and also doing their part for sustainable resource use.
Program logic Program logic is the rationale behind a program – the understood cause-and-effect relationships between program activities, outputs, intermediate outcomes, and longer term desired outcomes. Represented as a diagram or matrix, program logic shows a series of expected consequences, not just a sequence of events.
Input Output Intermediate outcome Long term outcomes The key components of a program logic can be likened to a drop landing in a pond and the resulting ripple effect towards the banks of the pond.
