Natural resource management (NRM) is the management of natural resources such as land, water, soil, plants and animals, with a particular focus on how management affects the quality of life for both present and future generations (stewardship).. Natural resource management deals with managing the way in which people and natural landscapes interact. It brings together land use planning, water.
