Current projects

There's a lot happening in our backyard!


The North East Catchment Management Authority wants to protect and enhance our region's precious land, water and biodiversity resources for current and future generations.

The heartbeat of our work is supporting community-led practice change. That's why we encourage new ideas, share research and solutions, promote innovation, help people and groups to connect, and identify funding opportunities that can help to protect and enhance land, water and biodiversity in our catchment.
