The Murrumbidgee region is bounded by Cooma in the east, Balranald in the west, Temora to the north and Henty to the south. The region covers an area of about 84,000 square kilometres (8.4 million hectares).
Under the 2006 New South Wales Natural Resources Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Strategy, this state of the catchments report was prepared as part of what was a comprehensive data collection and analysis for natural resource assets in catchments across NSW – the 2010 State of the catchments reports. Data was collected and analysed using a common analytical framework, and the reports provide information on natural resource condition and trends within a consistent reporting framework.
Reporting was based on 13 natural resource themes, in accordance with the NSW state-wide natural resource management targets. These resource management targets were part of the green state priorities and targets in the NSW State Plan 2010.
