15609 Local Environmental Management

This subject is focused on achieving better community outcomes through more effective integration of the principles and practices of ecologically sustainable development (ESD) into the day-to-day management of a council. This is a highly practical subject, strongly focused on how to achieve better results. It covers a wide range of processes and techniques that improve local government's performance in promoting sustainability and maximising quality environmental outcomes. This is particularly important at a time when both governments and communities have increasing concerns about these issues and higher expectations of local government's performance.
