Tasmania's Natural Resource Management (NRM) framework seeks to manage natural resources in a sustainable manner for the long term, achieving a balance between economic and social development and the need to protect the environment.
Property Management Systems Framework
Property planning is a term used to describe the initial planning process where land managers, often assisted by other organisations, develop a property management plan (PMP). The plan describes how certain aspects of an enterprise will be managed. When additional issues such as a business paln or an OH&S plan or environmental management system are added to the property management plan, it becomes a property management system (PMS), as it is dealing with more than one property issue.
Tools, information and calculators for a coordinated approach to on-farm management planning can be found on the Property Management Planning and Land Resource Management page of the FarmPoint website.
In Tasmania, the regional approach operates under the Tasmanian Natural Resource Management Act (2002). The Australian Government is involved through the Caring for our Country Initiative.
