    The Gascoyne Catchments Group has been working with pastoralists in the central rangelands to establish a self-assessment and reporting tool.

    The Monitoring Tool© will help educate land managers on the critical components that drive rangeland ecology, productivity and condition.

    This project will help integrate livestock production into the Tool and invest in skills development to help pastoral managers adapt to the likely impacts of climate change. A 'glove-box guide' and computer program will also be developed.

    Pastoral managers in the central rangelands will be encouraged and supported to use these resources.

    The Tool will be demonstrated to pastoral managers in other areas through the Land Conservation District Committee network.

    Investment: $ 145 000
    Delivery organisation: Rangelands NRM Western Australia
    Project duration: October 2012 - June 2014
    Location: Gascoyne region
