Goulburn Broken RCS renewal

The Goulburn Broken CMA is leading renewal of the Goulburn Broken Regional Catchment Strategy.

The Goulburn Broken RCS guides actions to improve and protect the Catchment’s natural resources (water, land and biodiversity).

Looking after these precious natural resources underpins the social, cultural and economic wellbeing of the diverse communities that make up the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

Development of the Goulburn Broken RCS involves extensive enagagement with organisations, groups and individuals that contribute to management of the Catchment’s natural resources.

Community ownership of the Goulburn Broken RCS is critical to its success, which is why we’re keen to work with you to ensure the strategy reflects your priorities and aspirations for the environment and your role in looking after it.

Between May 2020 and June 2021 we will be running a number activities seeking your input. We're also keen to hear from those of you who would be interested in making an Action Pledge to support the aspirations of the renewed RCS.

Please check this page regularly for engagement opportunities.
