The RiverReach program has provided significant material, planning and educational resources to communities throughout the QMDB over the last three years. The devolved granting process has proven to be a valuable mechanism for the initiation of on-ground works and as a platform for the delivery of educational and awareness raising activities. The range of riverine management projects developed among riparian communities reflects both the socio-economic and the environmental circumstances. An increasing knowledge of riverine management issues among both the community and practitioners and a growing acceptance of the need for riverine management within the community has increased opportunities for sustainable riverine management in the region. While the range of riverine management issues is diverse, and their integration complex, the combination of all three aspects (financial assistance, technical advice, and awareness raising) has enabled significant management outcomes to be achieved.
