About Us
The Department for Environment and Water aims to help South Australians conserve, sustain and prosper.
Our landscapes underpin our communities, our economy, our wellbeing and our way of life, which is why we all have a responsibility to protect and manage our state's landscapes for the enjoyment of all South Australians.
The department works in partnership with eight regional Landscape South Australia boards, responsible for administering the Landscape South Australia Act 2019. A new entity Green Adelaide will also bring an integrated approach to managing Adelaide's urban environment. A key priority of landscape boards is to support local communities and landowners to be directly responsible for sustainably managing their region's landscapes with an emphasis on land and water management, pest animal and plant control, and biodiversity. This includes providing greater funding and partnership opportunities with local community organisations to deliver on ground works and projects.
