Natural resources monitoring, evaluation and reporting

The NSW Natural Resources Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Strategy 2010-2015 (10977nrmmerstrat1015.pdf, 708 KB) guides the monitoring, evaluation and reporting of natural resources in NSW.

The strategy focuses on developing a seamless link between local, regional, state and national data on natural resource management (NRM) that will inform the community about how we care for the natural resources of NSW.

The strategy identifies four key priorities to achieve this:

  1. Monitoring, evaluating and reporting of the condition of, and pressures on, our natural resources
  2. Monitoring, evaluating and reporting on the short- to medium-term outcomes and outputs achieved from investment in natural resource management through a new program performance strand
  3. Developing and enhancing collaboration with NRM partners which include DECCW (including the NSW Office of Water), catchment management authorities, Department of Primary Industries, Department of Primary Industries Crown Land Division and the Natural Resources Commission
  4. Improving data acquisition, management and sharing arrangements.

Data and information produced from the MER program will be available through:
