Far North Coast Regional Water Strategy
www.industry.nsw.gov.au/water/plans-programs/regional-water-strategies/far-north-coast

The Far North Coast region is located in north-eastern NSW and comprises most of the region referred to as the Northern Rivers. The region is home to over 240,000 people and includes the regional centres of Tweed Heads, Lismore and Ballina.

The region’s growing population and tourism industry, important agricultural, forestry, construction and manufacturing industries and highly valued waterways, environmental and cultural assets are susceptible to long periods of drought and flooding.

The Far North Coast regional water strategy, to be completed in 2021, will consider these challenges and identify options to deliver healthy and resilient water resources for the region.

Protect yourself from scammers

Protect yourself from scammers

This week is Scams Awareness Week, which aims to highlight to all Australians the importance of keeping personal information secure. A scam is an illegal trick, a type of fraud usually designed to get money from people by way of deception.

Measures you can take to guard against scammers include:

  • if you’ve been asked to pay money into an account you haven’t paid into before, always check over the phone with your provider, or service supplier, to confirm the account details and be sure of who you’re dealing with
  • not opening suspicious texts, pop-up windows or clicking on links or attachments in emails
  • keeping your online personal details secure by keeping your password a secret, and;
  • choose passwords that are difficult to guess and update them regularly.

Visit the NDIS Scam awareness webpage to learn how to protect yourself from scammers or to report a scam. If you need information in different languages, visit the Services Australia webpage on scams and identity theft.

If you think you have been scammed, you can also call the NDIS fraud reporting and scams helpline on 1800 650 717 or email [email protected] to report a scam.

International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, 9 August

International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, 9 August

 Theme: COVID-19 and indigenous peoples’ resilience

International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, 9 August – The day was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1994 to promote the protection and rights of Indigenous people and celebrate indigenous people’s culture and achievements all around the world.

While the exact origins of COVID-19 have not yet been confirmed, the link between environmental damage and pandemics is well known to leading research organizations. But there is yet another group of experts, who have been worrying about the threat of a pandemic even before COVID-19: indigenous peoples. Thanks to their traditional knowledge and their relationship with the natural world, they have long known that the degradation of the environment has the potential to unleash disease.

The International Day observance will take place on Monday, 10 August 2020 from 9 am to 11 am in a virtual event.

The virtual event’s theme is “COVID-19 and indigenous people’s resilience” and will feature an interactive panel discussion with several guest speakers.
