Natural resource management includes all activities which manage natural resources or aim to make more efficient use of natural resources, e.g. water supply and management, and land management and development.

In 1999-2000, total expenditure by local government in Tasmania on natural resource management totalled $86.8m, of which $58.6m, or 67.5% was spent on water supply activities. In comparison, Australian local governments spent on average 45.9% of their natural resource management expenditure on water supply activities.

In 1999-2000, total per capita expenditure by Tasmanian councils on natural resource management activities was $184, which was well above the Australian council average of $97. This was largely because of the responsibilities of Tasmanian councils for water supply activities.
