Wheatbelt NRM Regional NRM Strategy

Wheatbelt NRM has developed this Regional NRM Strategy to guide future understanding and priorities for the management of the natural resources of the Avon River Basin.

Healthy natural resources are important to support current and future environments and community. The Regional NRM Strategy 2013 builds on 20 years of natural resource management activities to meet the vision of "A healthy environment that has a viable agricultural industry and retains a strong sense of place."

A healthy environment that has a viable agricultural industry and retains a strong sense of place.

The role of the Regional NRM Strategy is to set broad priorities and establish a framework for informing investment in the region. It is expected that this strategy will evolve and guide other organisations and that they will use this strategy where it meets their priorities.

This website explains how the Strategy was developed, it documents system resilience today, and provides future regional-scale management actions. In 2010, a review of the Avon NRM Strategy was initiated using a resilience assessment framework. Community was engaged to determine how the system worked and what values were important to them. Experts were engaged to understand the way the system interacted.

A systems analysis of the Avon Region can be found here.

A draft set of 5-year Strategic Objectives were presented to the 2013 Wheatbelt NRM AGM and feedback was obtained. Identification of priorities and key Thresholds of Potential Concern (TPC) for the region are now provided, as well as strategic priorities for NRM in the region.

Wheatbelt NRM Inc. would like to thank all who had input into this review. A list of all contributors can be found here.
