NCC : Riparian Restoration Planning

Build on existing planning processes (such as the JRCMA Johnstone River Restoration Plan) to develop restoration plans for all waterways within the Northern Cassowary Coast (eg. Russell, Tully, Murray, Liverpool, Maria, Hull, Moresby, plus other waterways and tributaries).

Why it is important?

While there has been significant progress made in developing and implementing restoration plans for some riparian areas, there are many waterways and tributaries where this is still required. Conducting appropriate restoration planning and prioritising can ensure the best use of limited resources and outcomes. It is critical to plan and work using a whole of catchment approach, incorporating an assessment of all waterways.
