Research and science
To manage our natural resources soundly, we rely on scientific information about the condition of our natural resources and the effect on natural systems of the way we manage the land, water and vegetation.
The Department of Natural Resources and Mines, Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts, and the Cooperative Research Centres all play a role in creating the science that underpins the way we manage our natural resources.
State-level evaluations in Queensland
Funded by the Australian Government through the Natural Heritage Trust, state-level evaluations were conducted to investigate the success of regional delivery of NRM objectives in Queensland and bordering northern Australia regions.
State-level investment projects (SIPs)
For truly sustainable natural resource management, some regional activities need to be coordinated and planned at the state level. The state-level activities are known as SIPs.
