Advisory Committees

The Mallee CMA has a fundamental responsibility to ensure the community has an opportunity to provide input into priority setting and funding allocations for natural resource management in the region. This is achieved through various subcommittees comprising Board and community members.

Community Advisory Committee

The Land and Water Advisory Committee (LWAC) is made up of community members from across the Mallee CMA region.

The LWAC is responsible for guidance on community input and engagement in Mallee CMA initiatives and regional plans from a community perspective, with input to the Board through the Board representative/s.

Community Reference Groups

There is the Aboriginal Reference Group which meets regularly and provides advice to the organisation including the Board. 

Community reference groups are responsible for community input and engagement in Mallee CMA initiatives, as well as oversight of the implementation of the Mallee Regional Catchment Strategy from the community’s perspective.

Catchment Partnership Committees

Catchment Partnership Committees exist for specialist areas of operations, Sustainable Agriculture and Biodiversity (terrestrial and aquatic), with membership consisting of partner agency representatives and stakeholders in the relevant field. Committee members provide strategic advice on the development, implementation and evaluation of regional initiatives, plans, programs and projects.
