Regional NRM plans and investment strategies
What are regional NRM plans?
Regional NRM plans form the basis for investment by regional NRM bodies.
Regional plans identify a regions' major NRM issues and ways to address them. They also outline the contributions that all involved groups will make.
Consultation, feedback and negotiation between regional bodies and stakeholders is a major part of the development of the plans. Key stakeholders include communities, Indigenous groups, environmental groups, industry groups, universities and local, state and federal governments.
Twelve of Queensland's 14 regions had their plans accredited by Queensland and Australian Government Ministers.
What are regional investment strategies?
A regional investment strategy (RIS) is a business plan used to attract investments. Both the Queensland and Australian Governments investment decisions are partly based on a region's RIS.
A RIS provides details on the specific actions, costs and timeframes required to implement a regional plan. A RIS outlines priority investments in NRM.
A RIS is the final step before a partnership agreement to formally release investment funds is reached between the Australian and / or Queensland Governments, and the regional body.
