The Mallee CMA's primary responsibility is to ensure that natural resources in the
region are managed in an integrated and ecologically sustainable way.
Our work is based on science and delivered through
meaningful partnerships with local organisations
such as Landcare, community groups, and government agencies in the Victorian Mallee.
The Mallee CMA region covers 3.9 million hectares - about one fifth
of Victoria. It is the largest catchment area in the state and runs along the Murray River from Nyah to the South Australian border, through areas of high-value irrigated horticulture and National Parks, and south through vast dryland cropping areas and public reserves to the Wimmera.

The Victorian Catchment Management Authorities Actions and Achievements Report provides a standardised ‘output’ approach to reporting actions delivered annually by each of the ten Victorian Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs); through partnerships with government agencies, industry, land managers and the wider community.
In late 2014, the Victorian Auditor General released a report which identified a number of issues restricting the effectiveness of Catchment Management Authorities. Since then, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Victoria’s 10 Catchment Management Authorities (CMA’s) have been working together to address the issues. This work has included drafting the ‘Our Catchments, Our Communities’ strategy.
