The Goulburn Murray Irrigation District (GMID) as a regional system is changing. While some of the change is outside our control (climate, global markets, technological change), we can shape the trajectory of change, rather than being forced to change in a particular unwanted direction.
The GMID Resilience Master Plan project is an effort by regional leaders to determine the ways to strengthen the region, making it more resilient to a range of possible futures.
Regional Development Victoria and its partners in agriculture and catchment management recognise that what we do now in the GMID region will impact the region’s ability to respond to change for years to come. This is our opportunity to make sure that the GMID is able to do well in the face of change.
RMCG and our associates Paul Ryan and Garry Smith have been engaged to work with GMID leaders and stakeholders to deliver the region’s Resilience Master Plan project. We’re having conversations with people from many different sectors about the principles that are common to resilient regions. Together we will uncover the things that can be done to strengthen resilience in the GMID.
