Mallee Regional Catchment Strategy Goal
To promote self-reliant and informed communities able to identify, direct and implement change to protect and improve our natural resources.
The boat was on hand at the Mallee CMA organised Catch-A-Carp day 2009.
The Mallee Catchment Management Authority is a community-driven and accountable organisation. It relies heavily on high levels of community engagement through its implementation committees and other systems to ensure regional community ownership and commitment to the priorities in the Mallee Regional Catchment Strategy 2013-19.
Core projects comprising the Community Capacity Program contribute towards:
- a continuation of the process of engagement to establish trust and confidence between the Mallee CMA and local Indigenous stakeholders;
- the engagement of new stakeholders;
- the engagement of local government;
- the encouragement of environmental education and training;
- a continual improvement in the ability of people and organisations within the region to manage our natural resources
