• Action through collaboration.

    A network for improving natural resource management across 80% of Australia.

We are dedicated to improving the productivity and environmental health of Australia's rangelands.

The Rangeland NRM Alliance is a network formed by 15 regional natural resource management organisations from across Australia.

Our purpose is to set and influence the rangeland policy agenda by:

  • developing an integrated body to represent NRM in the rangelands
  • developing a vision for the rangelands
  • identifying issues and implementing solutions
  • demonstrating and delivering nationwide collaboration
  • providing members and partners with a platform for networking and communicating.

Farewell Kate Forrest

Kate Forrest finishes as the Rangeland NRM Alliance Coordinator at the end of 2019. Kate has worked as the Coordinator on and off for the past decade. Kate could not bring herself to leave the rangelands behind entirely and her new job will see her popping up across the regions over the next couple of years.

You can still contact the Alliance via the email link above.

If you want to contact Kate she has moved to FarmMap Analytics https://www.farmmap4d.com.au/ and her phone number hasn’t changed.

Outback Alliance - lauched in Canberra

The Outback Alliance launched at Parliament House on 26th November 2018. The Rangeland NRM Alliance is a founding member of this cross-sectoral group of non-government organisations and individuals that have a shared vision for the better development, welfare and protection of Outback Australia.

The diverse members of the Alliance have a common interest in ensuring the development of policies that work best for the communities and the environment of remote Australia. Our sectors have come together because of our common and intertwined interests in supporting people in small and remote communities.

Rangeland Climate Change information available

The reports developed via the NRM Planning for Climate Change cluster project for the Australian rangelands are available on the Climate Change in Australia website. This includes 12 reports plus the projections report from CSIRO outlining what the models are saying about the future of the rangeland climate.
