FBA river health investment evolution (QLD)
The Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA) is a community-based organisation that promotes sustainable development in Central Queensland. The FBA plays a key role in the promotion of sustainable land management and the protection of the Great Barrier Reef.
Alluvium was engaged by the FBA to evaluate the effectiveness and success of the of NAP and NHT investment into the region. The key lines of enquiry for this assessment considered how effective has the investment been in changing or potentially changing resource condition; the benefit analysis of investment with respect to costs input and valuation or public and private benefits; the contribution of investment in effecting social and attitudinal change and the efficiency of investment with respect to transactional costs, non-cash costs and benefits.
The findings from this project will help the FBA report on success of the investment and identify areas to improve the future delivery of catchment and waterway rehabilitation programs.
