The objectives of government in relation to natural resource management in agriculture have changedsignificantly over time. Similarly, the process that government employs to develop natural resourcemanagement policy has also evolved. In the past, policy has been developed centrally, while morerecently there has been greater effort to involve the community in this process.There are clear linkages between changes in natural resource management objectives and changes inthe policy development process. The implementation of the NSW Government’s Water Reforms isused as a case study to consider these linkages and to examine the advantages and disadvantages ofmoving to a more community based approach to natural resource management. The implications ofthis approach for economists, in terms of their ability to contribute to the policy process, are alsoexplored.
