NRM Regions Australia (NRMRA) is leading a project that is working to increase the number of partnerships between NRM regional organisations and agricultural industries. The purpose of the project is to understand and improve partnerships with agricultural industries to identify links between sustainability and market access. NRM RA, and regional NRM organisations, are seeking to establish and strengthen the role they play in sustainability frameworks, industry partnerships and farmer groups. The project also includes the development of Communities of Practice, catalysing partnerships between NRM Regions and agricultural industries/companies and examining how NRM Regional Planning may align with sustainability indicators.
The case studies and reports listed below have been developed by NRMRA to showcase the partnerships that have already been developed, what has made them successful and how they interact with industry sustainability reporting or requirements.
The NRM and Industry Partnership project is funded by the Australian Government’s Building Landcare Community and Capacity (Smart Farms) program.
