About the Department
of Environment and Primary Industries
The new Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) will focus on boosting productivity in Victoria's world-class food and fibre sector, managing our natural resources, protecting our environment and responding to fire, flood and biosecurity emergencies.
DEPI has been formed from the Department of Sustainability and Environment and the Department of Primary Industries. Information about our work is currently located on this website and at www.depi.vic.gov.au.
The Energy and Resources portfolio is moving to the new Department of State Development, Business and Innovation.
