Threatening processes

>  Mallee CMA

Despite the predicted changes in our regional climate, a key assumption of the Mallee NRM Plan for Climate Change (pdf, 58.1 MB) is that climate change will not add to the suite of key threatening processes already identified by the Mallee Regional Catchment Strategy (pdf, 31.1 MB) (RCS), nor will it require a new form of management intervention. Rather it will potentially exacerbate one or more of these key threatening processes and/or require adjustment or alterations to our existing suite of management interventions or approaches. The threatening processes identified in the RCS are listed in table below, along with how they might be influenced by climate change over the coming decade.
