Goulburn Broken RCS renewal

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

The Goulburn Broken Regional Catchment Strategy 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 strategy involves extensive engagement with organisations, groups and individuals that contribute to management of the Catchment’s natural resources.

Community ownership of the strategy 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.

The public consultation period for the draft strategy has now closed. We are currently reviewing the feedback received and updating the strategy. The strategy will be available online once finalised.

Please find attached below the Goulburn Broken Regional Insights Paper, which provides a summary of findings from engagement activities, reviews and socio-economic analysis undertaken as part of the Goulburn Broken RCS renewal process so far, as well as a number of supporting documents.

We're really keen to hear what you think - please take some time to review the Insights Paper and/or join us for one of two online workshops in December (see flyer below) and provide any feedback via this questionnaire.

Webinar presenter Paul Ryan shared the latest in resilience thinking from across the globe and practical examples from our own backyard.
