The plan outlines ten-year priorities for natural resource management, including coastal protection and water management, working with farmers and Aboriginal communities to care for the land.
Designed by the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board, it is a collective plan for the region’s communities, organisations and businesses to work together for region-wide outcomes.
