Social and economic fact sheets
Implementing the Queensland Regional NRM Program can be assisted by an understanding of the social and economic conditions, characteristics, needs and aspirations of a region. This need arises because management actions identified in regional natural resource management (NRM) plans, and in some cases statutory regional plans under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, need the support of communities and individuals to be successful.
The Social and Economic Team in Regional NRM Programs in the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) can offer advice in using the guidance products or tools referred to, assistance on the best sources of information and data, and help with interpreting that data.
The following fact sheets provide some guidance materials to assist integrating social and economic considerations into your work.
