Abstract/Summary This report is a requirement of the Catchment and Land Protection Act 1994 (CaLP Act). The core objectives of the CaLP Act (the Act) are to: i. maintain and enhance long term land productivity while also conserving the environment (s.4 (a)(i)); and ii. ensure that the quality of the State's land and water resources and their associated plant and animal life are maintained and enhanced (s. 4 (a)(ii)). The Victorian Catchment Management Council (Council) is the State's peak independent advisory body on catchment management. In order to determine if the objectives of the CaLP Act are being met, the Act requires Council to deliver an assessment of the condition and management of land and water resources in Victoria every five years (s. 9 (a) (ii)). The last report was in 2007.
