An integrated approach 

We are focussed on coming up with new ways to integrate and communicate our work.

To stay ahead of the curve in changing times, we take an integrated approach, recognising that as the ecosystem is always adapting to pressures and change, so must we.

We take an adaptive management approach, recognising that management actions create opportunities to learn and improve. The adaptive management cycle is a structured, continual process that provides a basis for robust decision-making in the face of uncertainty through the use of monitoring and learning feedbacks.

Adaptive management improves long-term management outcomes, but it is important for decision makers dealing with urgent problems to find the correct balance between gaining knowledge to improve management in the future and achieving the best short-term and long-term outcomes based on current knowledge.

For South East Queensland, some of the tools we use:

  • Vision: Shaping SEQ
  • Priorities: South East Queensland Natural Resource Management Plan
  • Actions: Our projects & advice
  • Is it working: Report Card & analytics
  • Can we do it better:  ENVestor (the next-gen 'Future Card' which integrates the elements together - continuous improvement

 

Our work in protecting and improving the environment spans the many connected things making up a healthy region's ecosystem.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

Healthy Land

The condition, area and extent of arable and grazing lands are important for the supply of food, fi bre and other materials to support the society and economy of the region.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

Local landscapes

The quality of life enjoyed by people in the region is supported by access to, and connection with, the unique landscapes of the region. These regional landscapes help to defi ne the region’s character and people’s sense of belonging.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

Sustainable urban design

Creating relationships between the natural environment, urban form and structure, economic and institutional processes, and social livelihood. Includes a sought erosion and sediment control program.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

Healthy Water

Water resources and riparian areas provide ecosystem services and clean water for human consumption, environmental flows, and recreation, agricultural and industrial use.

NRM BUTTON COASTAL ICON

Coastal & marine

People of the region are privileged to live near one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. The natural resources of coastal areas and marine waters are vital to our way of life and are the basis for a valuable international and domestic tourism industry along with commercial and recreational fishing.

Air & atmosphere

Atmosphere, air and climate are natural resources that play a key role in the health of the natural system. Factors such as continued population growth, the number of households and an increasing reliance on motor vehicles pose a threat to future air quality. Maintaining and enhancing the region’s air quality is a key element when considering future land-use options and transport modifications.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

Nature conservation

The region has one of the richest diversities of animal and plant species in Australia distributed across a wide range of vegetation types and environments. The provision of all ecosystem services relies on supporting these habitats.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

Community

Private landholders manage the majority of the region. A priority is to enhance and maintain the capacity and ability of the community to engage in planning, implementation and monitoring of local actions to achieve regional targets.

NRM BUTTON LAND ICON

First Nations

Recognition of traditional owners as natural resource managers is one of the guiding principles of the SEQ NRM Plan. Traditional owner knowledge and values maintained the region for millennia. A key activity will be to achieve active involvement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in community planning and decision making.

We are protecting one of Australia's most desirable & fastest growing regions.
