Australian Capital Territory Natural Resource Management (ACT NRM) is one of 56 regional NRM organisations across Australia under the Australian Government's regional stream of the National Landcare Program 2018-2023 (NLP2) – Regional Land Partnerships (RLP). ACT NRM is hosted in the ACT Government’s, Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD).

ACT NRM works together with government agencies, delivery partners, volunteers, the broader ACT and regional community and other stakeholders to identify investment priorities, broker partnerships, share knowledge, and deliver programs.

Our Investment Plan is centred around three strategic investment themes focusing on biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and Aboriginal NRM and aligns closely with the Australian Government's priorities for investment.

Under the RLP a component of NLP2, ACT NRM have secured funding for the next 5 years to delivery Core Services of the Regional NRM body and Priority Projects aligned to the RLP Program Logic.
