The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) provides an efficient management approach for public and private land, and water for the people of Victoria.
We focus on protecting our environment, boosting productivity in Victoria's world-class food and fibre sector, and managing our natural resources - all processes which are strongly influenced by decision-making at a local level.
Our one-stop shop approach ensures better environmental protection and more productive landscapes throughout Victoria.
We support the state government's priority to boost productivity in Victoria's food and fibre sector, manage our land and natural resources, protect our environment, respond to fire, flood and biosecurity emergencies.
Our programs and services are delivered throughout six regions: Hume, Gippsland, Port Phillip, Grampians, Loddon Mallee and Barwon South West.
