Natural resource management reflects these linkages within and between natural systems. It integrates the management of social, economic and environmental values by involving the community and industry in planning and decision making.
Natural resource management is fundamentally about people. The success of natural resource management is ultimately determined by the level of community involvement and the adoption of ecologically sustainable practices across the community.
Funding assistance and support has been directed to hundreds of natural resource management projects and has encouraged broad community involvement: marshalling the commitment of community groups, land holders and land managers, all three tiers of government, as well as bodies dedicated to NRM program delivery.
Tasmanian Natural Resource Management Framework 2002 and the Natural Resource Management Act 2002, provide a structure and mechanisms for delivering effective management of natural resources in the State.
In June 2008, the government considered a report examining the effectiveness of the Tasmanian framework after five years of operation and reaffirmed its commitment to retain, and to strengthen, the Framework and the Act.
Tasmanian Natural Resource Management Council (the Council) is established under the Natural Resource Management Act 2002. The Council is a core element of the Tasmanian Natural Resource Management Framework 2002.
The Council provides high-level advice to the Government, through the Minister. Unlike the three Regional Natural Resource Management Committees, it has no direct role in the administration of programs and projects. The Council does, however, have close links to the Committees, both through cross-membership and through many of its activities.
Further information about the Council and recent updates are available here.
