Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority
The Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority (PPWCMA) is a statutory authority established in 2002 as the peak natural resource management body in the Port Phillip and Western Port region.
The PPWCMA provides leadership to a range of stakeholder groups and works to deliver integrated catchment management and sustainability of the region’s catchment assets identified in the Regional Catchment Strategy, by facilitating cooperation, coordination and partnerships amongst these groups. Our stakeholders are varied and include government departments and agencies, councils, community and landcare groups, businesses, landholders and individuals interested in improving the environment.
The PPWCMA manage a number of key projects in the region which aim to deliver large scale natural environment improvements to landscapes throughout the region. The PPWCMA also deliver a wide range of community grants helping to assist landcare groups and individuals with their environmental projects.
Why we support Greening the West
The PPWCMA has a strong history of managing large-scale revegetation projects in Melbourne’s west. The Greening the West project will not only work to revegetate and improve the environmental value of the region, but will also provide important health and recreation benefits to all Melbournians.
The PPWCMA are thrilled to be a partner in the Greening the West project.
