Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Management Board

Our role

The Northern and Yorke Natural Resources Management (NY NRM) Board works with all sectors of the community and all levels of government to provide strategic leadership for the management of natural resources in the Northern and Yorke region.

The Board leads regional natural resource management by:

  • engaging communities, listening to people and representing them
  • defining regional NRM issues
  • providing innovative solutions to regional NRM issues
  • advising government on how to resolve NRM issues.

A group of nine community and three government members have been appointed to the Board to provide strategic direction for all its activities. Board members have been selected for their NRM skills and experience, and their understanding of the complexities of natural resources management in the Northern and Yorke region. The Board’s community members live and work in the Northern and Yorke region and are passionate about working to protect the region’s natural assets

The NY NRM Board is responsible for the development and delivery of the NRM Plan for the region. This plan is developed in partnership with the community and stakeholders and aims to ensure that there is a balance between the needs of the community and the environment. The plan sets targets for the environment in the region and is delivered by Natural Resources NY through a diverse range of programs and projects across the region.

Our vision

A prosperous sustainable region, rich in diverse natural resources that are valued by an informed and passionate community.
