Full implementation of the LWMP will be subject to the availability of funding over the life of the program, therefore this document should be viewed as an investment prospectus as such. Given the current dry conditions within the region and the state, there will likely be several competing priorities for funding of land and water management programs in the immediate future. Implementation of the programs developed within the LWMP are likely to vary in scale from year to year. The scale of implementation will be influenced by factors such as uptake and participation in programs, water scarcity, climatic conditions and irrigation modernisation. North Central CMA will regularly identify local priorities and objectives based on the LWMP and present these as project proposals to investors.
