Draft Our Catchments, Our Communities strategy

The Victorian Government’s Our Catchments, Our Communities strategy aims to provide strategic directions on how integrated catchment management can deliver better long-term land productivity and environmental goals across the state.

The state’s catchment management authorities have been asked to lead regional consultation on the draft document and to seek feedback through their networks on its vision, goals and actions, identify the strengths and values of catchment management and comment on the catchment management framework.

 A copy of the draft Our Catchments, Our Communities is available here.

The Goulburn Broken CMA acknowledges and respects First Nations people and the deep connection they have with their land and waters.

We acknowledge the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people and their ancestors/forbears as Traditional Owners of the land and waters in the Goulburn Broken Catchment (and beyond). We value our ongoing partnerships with Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and Taungurung Land and Waters Council for the health of Country and its people.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge and recognise the primacy of Traditional Owners obligations, rights and responsibilities to use and care for their traditional lands and waters.
