MEDIA RELEASE: Hundreds to showcase innovations at premier NRM event
The latest in innovative technology, how Indigenous rangers are combining traditional knowledge and technology to manage Country, and building resilience in the face of climate change will be on show as part of one of the largest gatherings of natural resource managers in the Northern Territory this week.
Hundreds of representatives from across the Territory will converge on Darwin from 22 to 24 November as part of the 2022 Territory Natural Resource Management Conference and Gala Awards celebrations.
The event brings together landholders, community groups, primary producers, Indigenous organisations, government, industry and businesses from across the Territory to network and learn from one another.
The three-day event will include presentations, workshops and symposium sessions with experts in water, land and biodiversity in the NT on topics from fire, weed and soil management to biosecurity risks and tools to build farming efficiencies.
Territory NRM CEO Karen May said that now more than ever it was essential for those who depend on our natural resources to come together to work towards sustainable management.
“This is the only event of its kind in the NT,” she said. “It is an opportunity to strengthen collaboration and innovation, and build capacity for natural resource management across the Northern Territory.
“It is through shared knowledge and understanding that collaborations can be forged to address future challenges.”
She said that the 2022 NT NRM Awards held as part of the three-day event would recognise excellence and those who had been outstanding in their contributions to looking after the Northern Territory’s natural resources.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and thank those excelling in the areas of natural resource management and the time and energy they put into to looking after our land, water and biodiversity,” she said.
The winners of the 2022 NT NRM Awards will be announced as part of the gala dinner on Wednesday, 23 November at the Darwin Convention Centre. More information on the finalists here
