Abstract

This Governance Standard and Assessment Framework is an outcome from the Land & Water Australia
funded project Pathways to good practice in regional NRM governance. This interdisciplinary and
collaborative project was conceived to assess the effectiveness of regional NRM governance and to develop
a standard for good-practice NRM governance. The developmental work focussed on nine regions, located
in: Tasmania (Cradle Coast, South), Victoria (Corangamite, North Central, Goulburn-Broken) and NSW
(Central West, Murray, Lachlan, Northern Rivers), as well as the state jurisdictions of NSW, Victoria and
Tasmania and the national level.
The project objectives were:
1. To establish a theoretically robust understanding of good regional NRM governance
2. To develop a set of principles for good regional NRM governance
3. To describe regional NRM governance arrangements and structures, with particular reference to
our nine partner regions
4. To assess the quality of NRM governance in our nine partner regions, as well as the state and
national levels, against our governance principles and related themes
5. To identify aspects of regional NRM governance in our nine partner regions as well as the state
and national levels, that should be targeted for improvement
6. To develop a standard for good regional NRM governance that can be used to benchmark and
track governance performance.
This Governance Standard and Assessment Framework addresses Objective 6.
