isNRM was started in 2008 by Dr Rebecca Kelly (Letcher). From her previous positions at the Australian National University and ActewAGL,
Dr Kelly has over a decade of experience in integrated assessment and modelling of a broad range of natural resource issues including estuary management, water allocation and biodiversity conservation.

She also brings skills and interest in economics, mathematical modelling including hydrology and water quality modelling, statistics and econometrics, community participation and social and economic impact assessment.

She brings a strong research focus which can be used to develop innovative new modelling and assessment solutions designed for any situation.

Mission: Our mission is to provide high quality, professional and integrated advice on natural resource assessment and management issues.

Our mottos are:

  • No job is too small. We provide professional service on the full range of projects from independent delivery of very small to medium-sized projects, to being part of or leading a team for larger-scale projects.

  • Flexibility in a team environment. We have experience in a range of team environments from leading and building teams, to playing large to small roles in existing teams, to solo projects. We understand the skills and personality requirements necessary for creating a strong and success team and take pride in offering these to our clients. We are able to build strong teams of professionals to deal with any problem at hand and are keen to work collaboratively with universities, CSIRO, government agencies, NGOs and other private companies.

  • To provide high quality science to decision makers in an accessible way. We have substantial skills and experience in packaging and communicating high quality science for
    a policy, community or other decision-making audience.
