A wide range of individuals and organisations play a role in Natural Resource Management (NRM) in Western Australia currently. Many different service providers also Interact with farmers and land managers to assist or influence farm management decision making. This extensive network has the potential to be tapped by NRM projects to more efficiently influence on-ground practice change. Given the current environment of 'information overload' it is even more important to use these established networks effectively rather than to invent new ones.
This document lists a selection of NRM-related intermediaries and the roles they play in the agricultural sector. Where available, further information is provided on the characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of these intermediaries in relation to NRM projects as potential next-users. Please note this is not necessarily a complete list, and also that there can be significant variation within these groupings. A list of the sources of information referred to in this document is also provided.
