The project involved a review of the effectiveness of community skills, knowledge and engagement (CSKE) in natural resource management under the Australian Government's Caring for Our Country program.
The program involves significant investments of public funds. Organisations in 56 NRM regions across Australia receive an annual base-level allocation of $138 million through Caring for Our Country. It is not a new area of investment. The regional NRM organisations were established nearly a decade ago to invest in protecting the environment and the sustainable use of natural resources.
