Community Natural Resource Management (NRM) is a community-based approach to fixing environmental problems and protecting the future of our natural resources.
The works and activities of Community NRM strongly contribute to the management of natural resources within the GBCMA and significantly assists in the delivery of the Regional Catchment Strategy. The groups we include as “Community Natural Resource Management” Groups include Landcare, conservation management, sustainable farming, environment groups and 'friends of' networks operating in the GBCMA. The Goulburn Broken CMA does not delineate or favour any of these groups over the other.

The goals of the Community NRM Action Plan
Through community consultation and discussion five clear goals emerged. These goals are intermediate outcomes - or stepping stones - towards achieving the vision as articulated by Community NRM groups, and align closely to the delivery of the Goulburn Broken Regional CS.
- Functioning and enthusiastic Community groups that are part of catchment NRM projects
- Development and enhancement of long term partnerships
- Motivated community leaders taking up leadership positions in NRM and catchment management
- Improved knowledge base in the community on NRM and new and emerging NRM issues
- Adoption of Best Management Practice by land managers
