The River Basin Management Society (RBMS) is a representative body for professionals working with land, water and natural resource management in Australia.
The RBMS recognises, promotes and disseminates advances in the natural resource management industry as well as providing independent professional advocacy and comment. We encourage education, training, research and development for our members and the industry through funding and partnerships. We have been active since our establishment in 1986.
The RBMS aims to broaden the knowledge and experience of its members and to foster a better understanding between the many individuals and groups interested in land, water and natural resource management. By doing so, the RBMS hopes that more informed and balanced decision making will bring sustainable environmental benefit to Australia.
The RBMS keeps members updated on activities and new initiatives by:
- Holding monthly reading groups on contemporary water developments and policies
- Sponsoring and facilitating seminars
- Producing newsletters several times per year
- Established the Integrated Catchment Management Foundation to support sharing knowledge and promote capacity building in integrated catchment management.
