Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board

Our role

The plan sets measurable goals, priorities and targets for sustainable use of natural resources in the region, aiming to ensure that there is a balance between the needs of people and the environment.

The plan is delivered by Natural Resources AMLR staff through a diverse range of programs and projects.

Our vision

Our vision for the region is 'a healthy living landscape meeting the social, environmental, economic and cultural needs of the community, and ensuring the rights and wellbeing of future generations'.
