Reef Catchments purpose is to facilitate improvement in the knowledge and condition of land, water, plant and animals for today’s and future generations. Our strategy is to build community passion and understanding of NRM.

Ongoing facilitation of working groups across industries has allowed Reef Catchments to stay at the forefront of innovation and extension, while building the organisation’s ability to react to changing industry needs. Working and consulting with leaders in each industry group has led to the development of ABCD Management Practice Frameworks, a set of guides to assist producers in achieving sustainable management of their land, whilst maintaining or enhancing farm efficiency and productivity. The guides, with their associated Sustainability Guides, allow land managers to move from dated or conventional practices to current practices promoted as best management.

Regional Working Groups provide a platform to share locally developed knowledge, bring expertise to our region, trial ideas, and help gain consensus and feedback around practice management progression.
