Working with the community
Effective and sustainable management of natural resources in our region requires the continued involvement of informed communities. Natural Resources Adelaide & Mt Lofty Ranges (AMLR) staff engage with members of the community through programs and initiatives focussing on:
- urban, coastal and rural communities
- volunteer support
- Aboriginal communities
- education in schools.
Reporting on progress
In line with the AMLR Natural Resources Management (NRM) Plan, there are two intermediate targets (iTargets) relating to people in the region:
- increase the number of community members participating in learning opportunities or support services to 10 per cent of the region’s population
- increase by 70 per cent the number of participants in NRM programs relating to
- coast and marine
- land and biodiversity
- NRM communities
- NRM education
- water management services.
How we are progressing toward our goals is captured in regional report cards and iTarget cumulative reports.
