NARvis is the official regional Natural Resource Management (NRM) strategy for the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR). The first regional NRM strategy was developed in 2005 in consultation with land users, Traditional Owners, technical experts, community groups, and government officials active in the NAR. More than 1,000 actions were identified, targeting significant NRM opportunities and threats, protecting high value assets and building long-term NRM capacity in the NAR. Many of the NRM themes and priorities identified in 2005 are still relevant today and form the basis of all later updates to the strategy.
In 2012, the NRM community in the NAR again participated in a series of planning workshops, to identify significant environmental assets in the region.
The whole strategy was updated in 2015 to include a deeper consideration of the role of Aboriginal custodianship and the impacts of climate change, and refreshed in 2021 to take into account the changing needs and priorities of the NRM community in our region.
We respectfully acknowledge the Yamaji and Noongar people who are the Traditional Owners and original natural resource managers of the Northern Agricultural Region and pay our respect to all of the Aboriginal Elders and leaders in the region, past, present and emerging
