The 2005 Federal Budget provided for an on-going biennial Natural Resource Management (NRM) Survey, beginning with the 2004-05 reference year. The survey will collect data on land and soil; water related issues; weeds and pests; and native vegetation and other land cover. For each of these topics, data are collected on:

• activities to prevent or manage issues
• time spent engaged in identified management activities
• the impact of identified issues
• areas affected
• the financial cost associated with addressing issues.

It is anticipated that data will be available at the regional (National Heritage Trust) level.
