Implementation Committees

The Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority is in the process of implementing a new community engagement model. This section of our website is currently being reviewed and updated to reflect the new structure.

Implementation Committees are responsible for works in two geographical areas within the catchment – the Shepparton Irrigation Region and the Upper Goulburn.

The Committees comprise community members with wide knowledge and experience in areas such as agriculture, food processing, salinity, waterway and floodplain management and biodiversity.

Under the direction of the Board, the Goulburn Broken CMA has developed detailed environmental management strategies. Issues such as biodiversity, salinity, water quality and waterway management, floodplain management, pest plants and animals and greenhouse are the focus of the Goulburn Broken Regional Catchment Strategy which sets out priorities and goals for policy, funding and works.

Implementation Committees drive the works programs to ensure the activities of the Goulburn Broken CMA reflect the views of local communities.These committees act as a valuable link between the community and the CMA Board and staff.
