The TSRA Land and Sea Management Unit (LSMU) is responsible for coordinating the delivery of the Environmental Management Programme under the Torres Strait Development Plan 2016-2036.
The Regional Goal for the Environmental Management Program is that our natural and cultural environment is ‘protected, preserved and enjoyed through sustainable management’.
The key outcomes under the Development Plan that our programme focuses on are:
- the sustainable use, protection and management of natural and cultural resources;
- community adaptation to climate change, including rising sea levels;
- increasing the uptake of renewable energy; and
- supporting sustainable horticulture in communities.
