Market-based instruments in integrated catchment management
Market-based instruments (MBIs) are policy instruments designed to apply market forces to environmental issues.They seek to provide incentitives for polluters to reduce or eliminate their negative environmental impacts. MBIs have been rolled out to assist catchment management across Victoria through programs such as River Tender, Wetland Tender and Conservation Tender.
The River Basin Management Society (RBMS) invites you to join us at our October seminar to hear about how MBIs have been implemented in integrated catchment management in both rural and urban contexts. The seminar will include presentations from the following speakers:

Join us for cheese, wine and soft drink from 5.30 pm.The seminar will commence at 6 pm.
