Environmental Management Plan

The Derwent Estuary Program Environmental Management Plan is structured around five key management themes
  • Manage and reduce pollution
  • Protect and enhance natural systems
  • Monitoring and understanding
  • Inform and engage the community
  • Enhance foreshore use and ammenity
Within this framework, key issues are analysed and strategic actions are proposed. These actions are then distilled into a five-year Action Plan.
