Vision and Purpose

The Vision, Purpose, Values and Behaviours of the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority.


Resilient landscapes, thriving communities.


Through its leadership and partnerships the Goulburn Broken CMA will improve the resilience of the Catchment's people, land, biodiversity and water resources in a rapidly changing environment.

Values and Behaviours

  • Environmental Sustainability - we will passionately contribute to improving the environmental health of our catchment.
  • Safety - we vigorously protect and look out for the safety and wellbeing of ourselves, our colleagues and our workers.
  • Partnerships - we focus on teamwork and collaboration across our organisation to develop strategic alliances with partners and the regional community.
  • Leadership - we have the courage to lead change and accept the responsibility to inspire and deliver positive change.
  • Respect - we embrace diversity and treat everyone with fairness, respect, openness and honesty.
  • Achievement, Excellence and Accountability - we do what we say we will do, we do it well and we take responsibility and accountability for our actions.
  • Continuous learning, innovation and improvement - we are an evidence and science-based organisation and we test and challenge the status quo. We learn from our successes and failures and we are continually adapting using internal and external feedback from stakeholders and the environment. We are an agile, flexible and responsive organisation.

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.
