What is NRM?

Natural Resource Management (NRM) is the understanding of the financial, social and environmental benefits we gain from our natural resources and the protection of those resources for future generations.
Natural resources are all around us - they are the physical environment of the land, waterways and coasts; and the living systems, plants and animals they sustain.  Natural resource management includes all the things that people do to ensure that our natural assets remain healthy and productive.

Why NRM?

To develop and maintain a healthy region, the environment, society and economy must all be in good condition and work together. Healthy regions rely on us managing and using our natural resources wisely.
