Climate Change: Whole of Landscape Analysis of the Impacts and Options for the South Coast Region
The aim of this project was to identify the potential risks and impacts of climate change and seasonal variability on the natural resource assets, land and seascapes, industries and communities of the South Coast and allow people to develop actions and set priorities to minimise the impacts of climate change on the environment and the community.

Identification and Conservation of Fire Sensitive Ecosystems
This report is designed to assist future land management and planning within the South Coast region. It provides land managers with a preliminary list of fire sensitive systems and the key components within them which can be used to assess and monitor the health of ecosystems in relation to fire.
South Coast Macro-Corridor Network
South Coast Regional Invasive Species Framework
The Invasive Species Framework (ISF) has been developed for South Coast NRM to assist in its role in leading, assisting and at times funding invasive species management in the South Coast region. The ISF provides a follow up and builds on the foundational work of the Invasive Species Strategy 2013. The ISF provides strategic direction on invasive species management, at a broad cross theme and regional level.
Southern Prospects 2011 - 2016
IF you have an interest in the management of natural resources on the South Coast, reading Southern Prospects 2011-2016 will give you a sound understanding of what has already been achieved and our plans for the region’s future.
This strategy is built on Southern Prospects 2004-2009, which established a tactical framework for natural resource management in the region and provided guiding principles, strategic objectives and prioritised actions developed through extensive community consultation.
Southern Prospects 2004-2009 detailed eight aspirational goals, 50 outcomes, 22 resource condition and 100 management action targets across five themes.
Southern Prospects 2011-2016 was published in early September 2011 and is a product of 3,000 hours of community contributions expressed at more than 30 meetings across the region.
The strategy analyses the values and conditions of the region's resources and ensures our five themes of land, water, biodiversity, cultural heritage and coastal-marine, together with the overarching consideration of regional capacity are considered holistically.
Southern Prospects 2011 - 2016, has been used as the backbone for much of the information on this website.

Threatened Species and Ecological Communities Plan
This strategic management plan is the result of a pilot project in regional threatened species recovery planning, initiated in 2004 by the Australian Government's Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts (DEWHA).
The aim of this project was to investigate the feasibility of an integrated regional approach to threatened species recovery and threat abatement planning.
