Learning from Australia’s actions to improve the environment
About the documents
The Australian Natural Resource Management (NRM) community, including individual land managers, indigenous and Landcare groups, national research organisations and government agencies have a wealth of knowledge about NRM. However, that knowledge has not yet been systematically organised, easily accessed or mobilised for decision making. The knowledge bank of management effectiveness aimed to consolidate and organise evidence about the effectiveness of NRM activities to support the NRM community and government agencies to make informed, strategic decisions about on-ground management. To this end, we commissioned the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) to undertake a systematic literature review to collate scientific evidence about NRM. These reports describe the systematic review method, the results of the review process and makes recommendations for rapidly increasing the knowledge base for NRM in Australia. This project was part of the biodiversity knowledge projects program of work management between the Department of the Environment and Energy and CSIRO.
