Wet Tropics Major Integrated Project
What is the Major Integrated Project (MIP)?
- Grass roots: a reef water quality program funded by the Queensland Government but designed by the community (shaped by a consortium of over 40 organisations and hundreds of individuals).
- Understanding the issues: working with farmers to understand the issues and find solutions.
- Johnstone and Tully: concentrates on catchments where intensive agriculture poses a high risk to water quality.
- Farms and beyond: the project is working with all parts of the community, because it recognises that water quality is everyone’s responsibility.
- A mix of actions: things like farm services, catchment repair technologies, local scale monitoring and ecosystem service payments
Terrain NRM is an independent not-for-profit organisation that works with the Wet Tropics community to promote sustainable use of land and waterways, protect environmental values and support healthy, productive and viable communities and industries.
