Department for Environment and Water

The Department for Environment and Water aims to help South Australians conserve, sustain and prosper.

South Australia has a unique system of natural resources management boards that work in partnership with DEW to fulfil its roles and deliver services across eight natural resource management regions. Through the boards they develop meaningful relationships with the community and increase shared knowledge and understanding about natural resources. DEW encourage debate and share the decision-making and accountability for choices made.

DEW’s work is guided by the commitments set out in State Natural Resources Management Plan, the regional natural resources management plans and by the Corporate Plan.
