ABOUT THE NRM PLAN

Territory Natural Resource Management (TNRM) is the regional organisation responsible for planning, coordinating and facilitating natural resource management activities across the entire Northern Territory. 

 

Following the review of the 2016-2020 NRM plan, we have been working closely with diverse stakeholders to develop a plan that will address emerging NRM opportunities and challenges for the next five years.

THE CONSULTATION DRAFT- 2021-2025 NT NRM Plan

The Consultation Draft for the next iteration Northern Territory NRM Plan (2021-2025) builds upon the approach and structure developed through intensive community consultations in 2016 and upon the lessons we have learned through that earlier plan’s implementation.  The Consultation Draft also reflects our evolving knowledge of natural resource conditions and trends.

The Consultation Draft provides a framework to enable input and comments from the wider Territory community. We are exhibiting the document online and opening it for comment and submissions until the end of August.

NT NRM PLAN REVIEW 2021

During  the 2020 calender year, Territory NRM  undertook widespread consultations  with NRM partners and stakeholders across the Territory, culminating in technical working group meetings in the final months of 2020.   Through this process, the Territory NRM team implemented the second  and final review of the Northern Territory NRM plan  (2016-2020).  By doing so, TNRM is delivering on its commitment to adaptively manage the  Northern Territory NRM plan and maintain it as a ‘live’  and responsive document. 

 

Once again, approximately 200 individuals  contributed to  the review of the plan. The review process has demonstrated the power of collaboration  across diverse community  groups, agencies, industries and stakeholder institutions.   The review  highlights key lessons learned and the progress made towards achievement of NRM plan targets. Building an essential foundation for planning action and priorities for the next five years (2021-2025).

Many Territorians have contributed to developing the 2016 - 2020 NT NRM Plan. The plan promotes a shared vision that draws together the activities of all involved in natural resource management in the Territory. It provides clear strategies and goals for the management of the unique natural resources across the four main regions of the NT.
