World water day, 22 March 2015, highlights water’s role in the sustainable development agenda.It’s a day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues. It is a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future.
Following the finalisation of the Victorian Coastal Strategy last year, the Regional coastal boards have released the coastal plans for Victoria’s Western, Central and Eastern regions. Anyone interested in the future of our coasts can have a say on issues such as managing visitation pressures, foreshore management, planning for coastal flooding and erosion.The plans are regional interpretations of the statewide policy. They contain background information on the environmental, social and economic values of each region, outline the key issues affecting those values and list actions needed to deal with them.
For the plans, registering interest in attending consultation activities and making a submission: Gippsland and Central Coastal Boards go to gcb.vic.gov.au
Western Coastal Board www.wcb.vic.gov.au
