About the Document

Environmental indicators appropriate to the needs of local environmental managers (incuding local councils, community groups, and businesses) in six regions from around Australia were identified. The practicality of these indicators and their value as decision-making tools was explored. Links with environmental indicators recommended for national state of the environment reporting were identified. The use of data gathered by the community to support these indicators was investigated.
