Natural Resource Management
Natural Resource Management refers to the management of resources such as land, water, soil, plants, and animals with a particular focus on how management affects the quality of life for both present and future generations; this is sometimes referred to as stewardship.
Natural resource management deals with managing the way in which people and natural landscapes interact. It brings together land use planning, water management, biodiversity conservation, and the future sustainability of industries like agriculture, mining, tourism, fisheries, and forestry. It recognizes that we all rely on the health and productivity of our landscapes, and as stewards of the land, we play a critical role in maintaining this health and productivity.
Natural resource management specifically focuses on a scientific and technical understanding of resources and ecology, and of the life-supporting capacity of those resources.
