Our team identifies measures that can be used to make farms resilient to drought through restoring natural landscapes function.
MCCC can review your catchment and property from existing aerial photography, digital data sources and/ or drone data and assess the extent of landscape rehydration measures that will be possible. Landscape rehydration can be implemented at any scale from the paddock, to the farm, to the entire catchment. MCCC can provide preliminary advice on the scale and scope of measures that may be suitable for your property. An important part of this review will be gaining an understanding of your capacity to implement and manage landscape rehydration methods into the future.
Following a site review MCCC can undertake a site visit with our expert team and discuss the opportunities and constraints to implementing landscape rehydration in your catchment or on your landholding. Our team will identify key opportunities to undertake a variety of actions that will deliver landscape rehydration, this on ground discussion can immediately respond to any issues or constraints you face and provide practicable solutions. Future actions can also be discussed along with improved land management practices that will contribute to positive outcomes.
Landscape Rehydration Plans
A Landscape Rehydration plan considers the biophysical nature of your property, your capacity to implement Landscape Rehydration and any onground or regulatory constraints to develop a plan that is site specific and responds to your goals, budget and timeframe. A LR Plan will provide clear details of the measures you can take at your property to build a resilient landscape. It will also provide recommendations on monitoring and review of these measures over time. The plan will also make recommendations for capacity building and education in Landscape Rehydration to enhance your ability to manage installations in the short and long term. The plan will also provide advice on engaging with your neighbours and the benefits of a catchment wide approach.
Delivery of Landscape Rehydration plans
MCCC can deliver your Landscape Rehydration Plan from the initial site review through the site assessment and plan to the on-ground works, in partnership with our specialist contractors and on ground supervisors. We can also advise on the ongoing management of installations with a focus on post rainfall reviews and remediation.
Our service includes advice and implementation of recommended monitoring of installations and structures to assist in revealing the apparent and measurable benefits of landscape rehydration. Monitoring can range from the establishment of photo points to drone footage, stream gauges, groundwater monitoring and even ecological monitoring. Monitoring is best considered early in the project so that baseline data can be collected or before photos and or footage recorded prior to the implementation of works.
A key issue we face is the capacity of individual land managers to implement landscape rehydration techniques. Through our relationship with The Mulloon Institute and a range of ground-breaking regenerative farmers and educators we can provide capacity building services to a variety of clients
MCCC acknowledges that landscape rehydration actions may trigger the need for regulatory approvals. If permits are required we can provide ongoing assistance in developing and delivering the required information for the approval process.
In order to ensure Landscape Rehydration is implemented in its most effective form MCCC provides a certifying service to confirm the valid implementation of the landscape rehydration agricultural practice.
