Department of Environment Climate Climate Change & Water, NSW The DECCW is the lead NSW Government department with responsibility for protecting and caring for our environment, managing water resources and developing and coordinating programs to address the impacts of climate change in NSW. DECCW manages an area of over eight percent of NSW for conservation, education and public enjoyment in national parks and reserves. The Department researches, monitors, evaluates, reports and delivers best available scientific information to support environmental and cultural heritage policy, regulation and conservation objectives. Some key areas of work include protecting our natural resources, by minimising the clearing of native vegetation; improving biodiversity and protecting our unique native animals and plants; and tackling fire, pests and weeds in our national parks and reserves.
