Established by the Victorian Government to provide a blueprint for natural resource management (NRM) at a regional level, the Regional Catchment Strategy (RCS) has become much more. The RCS considers how people and place are entwined, what drives change, and how we can deal with opportunities and threats to create resilient landscapes in north east Victoria.
It reflects the responses of those living, working, visiting and connecting with the region, who were asked for their vision for north east Victoria’s land, water, biodiversity and community resources.
The North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) led development of the RCS, but the whole-of-region strategy is not owned by any single organisation. It has been developed collaboratively with Traditional Owners/First Nations, community, Landcare and other government agencies.
Acknowledgment of Country
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners/First Nations Peoples of north east Victoria. We recognise the diversity of cultures and the intrinsic connections they have with their Country.
The North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) pays respects to Elders, past, present and emerging and recognises the primacy of their obligations, responsibilities, and rights to care for their Country.
