YOUR CATCHMENT MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST NETWORK
This network aims to create opportunities for sharing and evolving
knowledge to progress the field of Catchment Management across
Australia within an integrated water management framework.
Through doing this, we build cohesive collegial networks and aim
to develop leading-edge practices that foster collaboration and
integration together with others working to improve water quality
through catchment management across Australia.
A key achievement for this committee has been the development of the Source Water Protection Statement.
Source Protection Statement Case Studies:
Principle 6: Seqwater's catchment information decision support system
Principle 7: Know your catchment assessment of recreation on water
Principle 8: SEQ’s Resilient Rivers initiative and catchment action plans
Principle 9: The transdisciplinary and adaptive nature of source water
Principle 10: Coliban integrated catchment management plan partnership
