An important and unexpected development of Landcare has been the emergence of Landcare networks. Networks operate as a two-tiered umbrella structure at a scale substantially larger in extent than most groups. They typically exhibit a more professional management approach, have a stronger power base and are more autonomous than most groups. Important outcomes include: * efficiencies in coordination within and between groups * enhanced communication structures * increased resources for Landcare * increased onground work * adoption of regional perspective; and recruitment of skilled community leaders Networks have combined the advantages of community identification associated with grass roots organisations and the efficiencies and power of regional organisations.
