    Abstract

    This paper presents an overview of the formal institutional arrangements for natural resource management (NRM) in the Lake Eyre Basin (LEB) and the role of these arrangements as an enabling environment for community engagement in NRM. The appropriate scale of NRM management and the complexity and expense of effective community engagement is discussed. The paper highlights challenges faced by NRM groups in remote regions and their need for proper support and sharing in significant decision making processes. Regional interface groups are presented as relatively recent experiments in ecological intervention that have operated in a rapidly changing policy environment. The paper concludes with a summary of potential key challenges for NRM in the LEB region and suggests that interface organisations require understanding, capacity and support to utilise their investments and program activities to learn about how to improve and adapt to meet the challenges of their operating environment.
