Catchment Action Plans (CAPs) across New South Wales are being reviewed as part of a state-wide
process to review progress and set new priorities for natural resource management (NRM) for 2012-


Southern Rivers Catchment Management Authority (CMA) Chair, Pam Green said the process will result
in 13 updated strategic regional NRM plans that will align the NSW Government's major NRM

objectives with community aspirations for their catchment.

“CAPs have been in existence since 2006 and provide opportunities for all sectors of the community to

participate in the planning and delivery of sustainable NRM,” Mrs Green said.

“The Southern Rivers CAP aims to guide investment to protect and restore the region’s natural
resources - water, coasts, soil, native vegetation, plants, animals and cultural heritage that underpin

the health and productivity of our landscapes and communities.

“This is a great opportunity for us to revise the Southern Rivers CAP and address some of the changes

that have occurred in our region over the past five years.

“Many stakeholders and communities have now been informed of the CAP update and are being
encouraged to complete an on-line survey to identify the things they particularly value in their area,”

Mrs Green said.

To access the on-line survey and participate in future NRM planning for the region go to

“More opportunities for involvement, including an on-line community forum and meetings, will be
offered throughout the review process and will be advised via this website over the coming months,”

Mrs Green said.

If you live in the Southern Rivers region of NSW from Stanwell Park to the Victorian border, or have an
interest or connection to the region, now is your chance to have your say about what natural values

are important to you.
