Abstract

Environmental degradation, including biodiversity loss and water quality decline, is a major problem facing
Australia. Regional delivery of natural resource management (NRM) is the main mechanism for addressing
such issues. Yet we lack fundamental understandings about the effectiveness and quality of regional NRM
governance. Governance involves consideration of issues such as authority, accountability, representation,
and consultation. It is a key determinant of the capacity of regional NRM institutions to make effective
decisions and deliver outcomes. 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 work focuses on nine NRM regions in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.
