Background information for the Concurrent Workshops
CMA Changes & Community Engagement – Janine Haddow (DSE)
The recent White Paper on Land and Biodiversity in a time of Climate Change, Securing Our Natural Future, proposes that the ten Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) and the three Coastal Boards will be amalgamated into five Natural Resource & Catchment Authorities (NRCAs). Connection to the community is emphasised as a key role of the new Natural Resource & Catchment Authorities but the details are currently being developed.
Moderated by Mick Murphy, this session gives FTLA members and friends the opportunity to discuss the direction that we would like the FTLA to go, and Landcare more generally in a positive and friendly atmosphere.
