Subject outline

In this subject the central concern is natural resource management and land use management within the framework of catchment management theory and practice. Using case studies and field work undertaken via intensive workshops we aim to develop knowledge and skills in the management of land use and development so that: areas suitable for accommodating development are identified and inappropriate development is prevented; salinity is reduced; sustainable land use is encouraged; pest plants and animals are controlled; and drainage and stormwater run-off are controlled.
