Abstract/Summary This paper briefly discusses the concepts, methods, results and experiences gained from on-going plan evaluation research on regional natural resource planning in Northern Australia (McDonald et al. 2003) Given the prominence of planning and plans in natural resource management, it seems obvious that we need to understand where plans fit into the policy system, how effective they are, and what contribution they make. To understand whether a policy system is working well or not, and why, requires consideration of many political, legal, bureaucratic, financial and procedural dimensions of the system in which plans are just one element. Plans translate policy objectives into a range of actions including statutory, economic and program funding actions on the ground
