NRM North is one of three formally recognised natural resource management organisations in Tasmania and one of 54 across Australia. NRM North was established in 2003 through a community-driven process in response to the Tasmanian Government’s Natural Resource Management Framework and its enabling legislation, the Tasmanian Natural Resource Management Act 2002 (Amendments 2018).
NRM North works with industry and the community to care for natural resources across northern Tasmania. NRM North is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that manages government investment in natural resource management (NRM) and actively seeks funding from non-government sources, for the planning, delivery and implementation of integrated NRM.
The organisation is overseen by the NRM North Management Committee to ensure the continuation of sound business and best practice in natural resource management.
