NRM Plan’s evidence library

At the core of the Regional NRM Plan, is an iterative, adaptive management planning process and decision-making framework in which community values, local knowledge and scientific evidence are combined to help facilitate conversations, clarify and resolve conflicting priorities, and ensure resources are committed to activities that provide the best return on investment.

The evidence library hosted on this page will support this ongoing planning process. It reflects information used to develop the plan, and will be updated and refined over time as new information becomes available during plan implementation.
