The Rangelands Fire Management project commenced in October 2006, when contract arrangements were finalised and initial funding allocations received. This project report covers the reporting period from July 2006 to July 2007. Funding was only made available for the last 9 months of this period.
This period has coincided with the peak wildfire season in north Queensland, which was more active than normal. As this issue was anticipated, the Cape York Peninsula Development Association commenced some of the low cost tasks associated with this project as early as April 2006 in order to achieve a number of the project milestones as quickly as practicable. However, due to initial difficulties recruiting positions for the coordinator positions, significant activity in the project did not commence until late January, 2007. The project is now proceeding as planned, and project milestone completion dates have been adjusted to absorb the funding delay.
