The State Government has established a catchment management system to effectively implement integrated catchment management as a tool for ecologically sustainable development of our natural resource based industries, the protection of land and water resources and the conservation of natural and cultural heritage.

As part of this system, Catchment Management Authorities were created to maximise community involvement in this system and ensure transparency in decision making on these issues.

In this section:  

The WGCMA is directed by a skills based Board appointed by Government and is responsible for strategic and policy direction for the integrated management of land, biodiversity and water through South, Central and West Gippsland.
