Australian Capital Territory Natural Resource Management (ACT NRM) is one of 56 regional NRM organisations across Australia under the Australian Government’s regional stream of the National Landcare Programme. ACT NRM is hosted in the ACT Government Environment and Planning Directorate.

ACT NRM role

ACT NRM uses a collaborative approach to achieve a balance between the needs of the community (such as recreation and health) and those of the environment. Working together with delivery partners, volunteers, the broader ACT and regional community and other stakeholders, we:

  • provide leadership for regional natural resource management planning and prioritisation
  • broker collaboration and engagement
  • build capacity of local community and industry to improve natural resource management
  • promote improved Aboriginal outcomes through natural resource management
  • administer funding
  • help deliver national environmental obligations
  • raise awareness about natural resource management issues
  • communicate successes.

ACT NRM obtains independent advice from the ACT Natural Resource Management Council (NRM Council). The NRM Council was set up as an independent advisory body to the ACT Government. It has seven members and operates under a charter.
