Regional natural resource management
Natural resource management (NRM) is the long-term care and use of our soil, water and vegetation and the ecosystems they make up. This has to be done in a way that also supports the economic and social needs of the community.
The Queensland Government’s Regional NRM Programs business unit works with people and organisations both inside and outside of government who are involved in natural resource management. These include 14 community-based regional NRM groups and landholders, industry groups, Traditional Owners and Landcare volunteers.
The unit also manages substantial grants programs to support on-ground work with funding from the Queensland and Australian Governments.
The website contains information on:
- Queensland Government regional NRM funding
- regional NRM
- healthy regions agenda
- community and regional NRM groups
- regional NRM plans and investment strategies
- research, education and careers resources
- who's who in regional NRM.
There is also information on how to get involved in regional NRM as a volunteer, landholder, community member or worker.

Queensland Regional NRM Framework
The Queensland Regional Natural Resource Management Framework has been released. It sets out the organisational structure and administrative system within which we continue to develop and deliver regional NRM arrangements.
It is intended to:
- integrate and align NRM effort at the landscape level
- define how priorities are set for Queensland Government regional NRM investment
- identify opportunities for improving NRM arrangements.

Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger program
The Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger program is a Queensland Government initiative that aims to improve Indigenous participation in the management of land and sea country.
The program cares for and promotes the land, waterways and protected species through sustained and diverse investment in land and sea management. Ranger activities are tailored to meet local needs and are negotiated by the government, communities, Traditional Owners and local landholders.
