Victoria’s environment is one of our greatest assets. It underpins our economy and provides social and recreational values that benefit our communities. Maintaining the health of our catchments is essential to sustain our environment and our liveability into the future.
Integrated catchment management recognises that land, water and biodiversity are all part of a connected environment spanning the top of a catchment down to the coast, and related marine environments. It acknowledges the intrinsic values of our environment and that healthy catchments underpin regional economies and provide social and recreational benefits for the community.
Integrated catchment management is community based, regionally focused and collaborative.
