Monitoring and evaluation is about identifying and collecting information to determine if natural resource management (NRM) activities produce the desired results. Monitoring, evaluating and reporting helps:
- identify what works, and what activities should continue
- improve actions where they are less effective
- change actions if they are ineffective

State of the Environment Reporting
National State of the Environment Reports (SoE) are based on data and information gathered and interpreted against environmental indicators. For convenience environmental indicators have been grouped into environmental themes. These environmental themes are known as the SoE reporting themes.
