We highly value the input and perspectives of our stakeholders and commit to providing ample opportunities to participate, comment and be involved in the design of water management arrangements. The Rural Water Use Strategy implementation is led by NRE Tas, but there are many other areas of government, government businesses, non-government organisations and individuals playing a role in managing our freshwater resources and waterways. Reinvigorating collaboration, partnerships and engagement in water management are key to achieving the goals of the Strategy.
Advisory groups such as the Rural Water Roundtable and the Water Managers and Data Custodians Working Group, plus other stakeholder consultation and involvement will guide the delivery of specific actions, enabling two-way communication on important water management issues.
This past year has seen several working group meetings, collaborative workshops, and information sharing sessions held.
Engaging with Tasmanian Aboriginal community
At NRE Tas we are on a pathway to understand how to engage with Tasmanian Aboriginal people to provide better connections with freshwater. Visit Aboriginal Freshwater Interests for information on how we are doing this.
