The Mulloon Institute joins United Nations sustainable development initiative

Big news! We're thrilled to announce that The Mulloon Institute's key project, the Mulloon Community Landscape Rehydration Project (MCLRP) has been selected as one of only five global model projects by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network - a  United Nations initiative to tackle the challenges of making ambitious changes to our global agriculture and food systems. 

The Mulloon Institute has been selected for its world-class methodologies and integrated science research program. Learnings from the MCLRP, together with inputs from four other model projects from around the world, will contribute to the development of globally applicable agricultural pathways and farming best practice models that are productive, profitable and sustainable. 

We will work closely with the federal and state government and our partners including Australian National University and NSW Department of Primary Industries to formulate global policy guidelines for potential pathways to sustainable agriculture practices. Other model projects in China, Uruguay and the United Kingdom have also been selected.


Launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in August 2012, the SDSN mobilises scientific and technical expertise from academia, civil society, and the private sector in support of sustainable development problem solving at local, national, and global scales.

The UN's global Sustainable Development Goals were committed to by all UN Member States in October 2015 in New York City, with the target to develop pathways and political guidelines to help countries achieve goals to ultimately improving global poverty, environment, peace, governance and economy.

We extend a huge thank you to the vision, hard work and dedication of our partners, supporters and community.
