Dryland Salinity | Irrigated Salinity | Urban Salinity | Salinity Indicator Plants

In March 2000, the State Government released the document Salinity management in Victoria: Future Directions. The document provided an initial assessment of the challenges and proposed future direction for salinity management in Victoria.

In August 2000, the Minister for Environment and Conservation released a framework to advance the way Victorian’s were addressing their $50 million a year salinity problem. The State Government released the document Victoria’s Salinity Management Framework: Restoring our catchments to provide a statewide plan for protecting Victoria’s environment from salinity.

The framework focused on the need for land use change in the future, the role of various levels of Government, the need to build the skills and capacities of landholders to deal with salinity and the need for efficient water use.
