This ‘3 Year Plan’ presents strategic direction to ensure Wheatbelt NRM effectively responds to national, state and regional NRM needs. This will be achieved by engaging our community to actively support and progress our strategic objectives. This ‘3 Year Plan’ is supported each year by an Operations Plan that sets out how resources will be allocated and utilised in progressing the strategic objectives in this document.
The Wheatbelt Regional NRM Strategy guides NRM investment priorities within the region. The regional community provided important guidance to the development of the strategy, which reflects their values and understanding of the environment they live in and know.
