The former Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council initiated annual Forums of regional NRM organisation Chairs in 2002. Forums provide an opportunity for Chairs to build networks, share information and receive briefings on strategic direction for NRM policies and programs. Since 2010 NRM Regions Australia has taken responsibility for convening these Forums in partnership with the host State/Territory regional NRM organisations.

Following each Forum, NRM Regions Australia produces a report on matters discussed and the priorities established by the Forum for NRM Regions Australia for the proceeding year.

Reports from recent Forums can be found below:


The 2018 Forum will be held in Darwin on Monday 21 May 2018 and Tuesday 22 May 2018 (A welcome reception will be held on the evening of Sunday 20 May and, potentially, a field trip on Wednesday 23 May). Please login in below for registration and other details.
