The Landholders Driving Change (LDC) project is working closely with graziers in the Bowen, Broken, Bogie (BBB) catchments from 2018 through to 2021 to tackle erosion and improve land management, productivity and water quality in this important Reef region. The LDC project is one of two Major Integrated Projects (MIPs) funded by the Queensland Government. The MIPs have been designed to work collaboratively with landholders to pilot a range of innovative methods to improve water quality entering the Reef lagoon. This report has been commissioned by the NQ Dry Tropics to support the trial and evaluation of new incentive approaches as part of the LDC project in the BBB. The project has: • Reviewed relevant land management practices with a focus on grazing and gully remediation and analysed the public and private benefits of practice change; • Collated and assessed potential incentives to facilitate adoption of desirable land management practices; • Reviewed and summarised learnings from previous incentive programs; and • Summarised incentive programs currently available to BBB landholders.
