De-risking landscapes for new agricultural development in Northern Australia
CRCNA Chief Scientist, Professor Allan Dale
Delivered 11/11/2019 at the TropAg Conference, Brisbane
The Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA) is focusing strategic effort on exploring key issues constraining development in key or priority development regions in each jurisdiction by partnering with the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments to explore the issues at hand. The work aims to propose innovative policy, process, regulatory and other solutions to facilitate agricultural development while achieving environmental and social outcomes which help maintain our nation’s market advantage. By deeply engaging key development stakeholders to help collectively identify issues and solutions, it is hoped this case study-based approach will identify new pathways to achieve positive development outcomes and explore improved approaches to the way these risks are understood and managed.
