About the workshop report
This report summarises the key outcomes of a one and a half day workshop entitled Conservation incentives: a practitioner's workshop. This workshop was the fourth in the series of state based workshops. The workshop was held in Woodend Victoria on 5-6 August 2003 and organised and hosted by Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) with funding from Environment Australia. The workshop was independently facilitated by Michael Williams of Michael Williams & Associates Pty Ltd.
The workshop brought together stakeholders from across Victoria involved in the regional delivery of natural resource management. Several regional organisations from Tasmania were also present. Commonwealth, state and local government were represented, as well as NGO's associated with NRM. Eight of the ten Catchment Management Authorities across Victoria were represented at the workshop. CMAs play a major role in the regional delivery of NRM in Victoria and will continue to do so within the framework of NHT2 and NAP.
