Northern Territory NRM Plan

Brief:

The aim of this project is to get the NT NRM Plan ‘off the shelf’ and being utilised as a ‘living’ process allowing stakeholders to measure progress and adapt actions towards a shared vision and agreed targets.

The review will develop four regional implementation plans across the NT utilising Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation (the Open Standards) as a planning tool to support regional planning and to scale this up to the NT-Wide Strategic INRM plan. The Open Standards, and supporting tools, have been identified by TNRM as a useful way to standardise this process and assist regional coordinators and regional stakeholders with their NRM activities.

Outcome:

Conservation Management has been engaged to achieve this, the following is the general approach proposed:

  • Develop general Open Standards-based planning and implementation framework for TNRM
  • Using existing plans, prepare materials for stakeholder consultation, including workshops, that focuses on prioritisation and implementation.
  • Run a number of regional forums to review existing material and prioritise Strategies
  • Use the results to develop a Territory NRM Implementation Plan, including clear measures of success and approaches to reporting on these
  • Provide advice on the integration of Miradi with the TNRM operational systems.
