The challenge

A delicate balancing act

Everyone in Australia lives in a catchment. Understanding how we best manage the land, water, vegetation and ecosystems in a catchment, alongside agriculture and mining, is important for the long-term sustainability of Australia’s Natural Resources.

Our response

Identifying the suitability of catchments

The Catchment Management group uses a range of scientific approaches to help identify areas that can be sustainably used for agricultural (and mineral resource) development; as well as areas that may require remediation or restoration due to previous degradation.
