The disastrous North Queensland floods have had a dreadful impact in the Southern Gulf region. Our community will need a comprehensive recovery program that must extend over the next several years. Southern Gulf NRM believes Natural Resource Management has a vital role to play in the recovery of communities, agricultural industries and the landscape. Southern Gulf NRM Chairperson outlines why in this message.

NQ-NWQ Monsoon Event - Funding Submission
Southern Gulf NRM is very grateful for the contributions of producers, local governments, QDAF staff and others for the information provided in the last week about soil erosion impacts caused by the flooding. We’ve packaged this up and passed it onto the Queensland Department of Environment and Science, which is compiling a state-wide submission for funding under national disaster management arrangements. With your help, we have been able to demonstrate the urgent need for financial support to stabilise and remediate these very extensive impacts in our regional landscape. If you were unable to provide information in the short timelines set by the Department, don’t worry. We will continue to compile information if you would like to provide it. It will be considered when setting regional operational priorities if funding is provided.
