Assets can be nominated for inclusion on the Asset Register at any time provided they are tangible, physical things that exist and can be drawn on a map. An asset is the thing we hope to protect, improve or manage better through a proposed project. It could be large or small, degraded or pristine, localised or dispersed. Examples include wetlands, river reaches, individual plant or animal species, areas of habitat, vegetation communities, highly productive land systems, water resources (including aquifers), offshore islands and other marine environments… the only criteria that you need to keep in mind when nominating an asset for inclusion on the register is whether the asset you are nominating is a tangible, physical thing that can be drawn on a map. If it is, then it’s considered an asset for the purposes of this plan. If you need help or aren’t sure, discuss your ideas with your relevant Rangelands staff contact.
Nominate using the Asset Nomination Form (download in word (.docx) or PDF (pdf) format. The Asset Nomination Form contains a variety of fields where information about the location, values, condition and threats is recorded.
Complete all fields on the form to the best of your knowledge.
Ask your Rangelands staff contact if you’re unsure or need help.

The Asset Register will be reviewed annually by a technical review panel (membership to be determined). During the annual review, changes to filtering criteria scores can be made in response to new information or changing circumstances and new assets will be filtered and added to the interactive map. The potential projects list, or short list, will then be updated, incorporating new assets where relevant. The Asset Register will be updated on an ongoing basis to include assets that haven’t yet been reviewed and filtered. These assets will be listed but their scores will read ‘Not yet filtered’.
A Regional Plan working group will be established to keep the site content updated and ensure any new information, such as climate change prediction data and approved carbon farming methodologies, is incorporated.
