Natural Resource Management in South Australia
In 2004 the South Australian Government introduced new legislation, The Natural Resources Management Act 2004 (the NRM Act). The NRM Act provides a more integrated and sustainable structure for managing our State's natural assets - that is our soils, water, plants, animals and the diversity of our landscapes and ecosystems.
The Natural Resources Management Council has the expertise to advise the State Government about the long term strategic directions for the management of the State's natural resources.
