A big thank you to everyone who joined the SEQ Catchments board, management and staff at the Annual General Meeting held in Brisbane this week.

The Queensland Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, The Hon Andrew Cripps addressed the meeting, making a special acknowledgement of volunteers as the ‘frontline of NRM achieving tangible results on the ground’ across the region. 

He also discussed the Queensland NRM Program and the potential for a Brisbane River Improvement Trust to tackle water quality and supply issues affecting the southeast.

At the meeting SEQ Catchments delivered its combined Annual and Sustainability Report 2013-14, aligned with the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) sustainability reporting framework.

Our Chairman Robert Smith spoke of the importance of community involvement in getting things done on the ground, while CEO Simon Warner outlined all that has been achieved with our Strategic Investment Plan despite the challenges of the past five years.

Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM for your commitment and collaborative spirit. 

Best wishes from everyone at SEQ Catchments for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and for a safe and relaxing holiday period. We look forward to working together in 2015.

Telling the SEQ Catchments story in 60 seconds

Natural resource management is a complex topic. Telling people who we are, what we do, and the importance of NRM to the economy is always a challenge. 

But in today’s world people want information fast; they won’t spend 15-20 minutes reading some text. 

So we came up with an animated infographic to communicate the important points in an easy to understand, visual manner.

Sharing is caring! 

Five years on and the results are in!

Back in 2009, SEQ Catchments developed a five year Strategic Investment Plan (SIP) that detailed 22 specific, deliverable targets that we and our partners would achieve by 2014.

These targets were set by our community and represent our contribution towards preserving the natural resources that underpin our economy and way of life.

This is not just funding reporting; this is an overall look at the contribution the work we have done over the past five years has made to our region’s environment.

Five years on and the results are in. Of the 22 targets we exceed 10, achieved 5, partially achieved 3 and missed just 3.
