Queensland Government regional natural resource management funding
Over the last 150 years Queensland’s landscapes and catchments have undergone extensive modification for urban infrastructure, agricultural production, tourism and mining. These modifications have led to significant changes to natural assets and as the population has increased there has been an increase in the use of natural resources.
To protect our natural environment and mitigate the effects of climate change, Queensland must constructively engage millions of people and hundreds of organisations in environmental and natural resource solutions.
Many Queenslanders have already experienced the effects of reduced natural resources through the recent natural disasters. Individuals and communities mobilised to meet and overcome these challenges through a variety of measures.
The Queensland Government is investing in long term solutions to these environmental and natural resource threats. Queensland Government regional NRM funding is addressing biodiversity, wetlands, water quality, coastal risk, sustainable agriculture and weeds and pest management. This will support the sustainable management of natural resources and help protect significant natural assets.
Queensland Government regional NRM funding engages the expertise and efforts of the 14 regional NRM bodies throughout Queensland to achieve these goals.
