Considered Solutions, Extended Sustainability


The purpose of this program is to support restoration of the functions of wetlands, which are currently under pressure from agriculture and development. Restoration of wetlands and catchments is a pre-requisite for ensuring perennial river flows across the landscape and securing water for people, livestock, and wildlife; while maintaining an environmental reserve for rivers. This program will work closely with Water Resource Management Authority (WRMA) to implement the Water Act 2002 provisions on co-management, the National Water Master Plan and support the development of the National Wetlands Policy.
