Summary

This summary report presents recommendations and suggested actions as outlined in the ‘De-risking, brokering and prioritising agricultural development in northern Western Australia’ report authored by  NAJA  Business Consulting Services and in support of the Government of Western Australia Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (WA DPIRD) project agreement with the CRCNA.

The project sought to identify and explore development challenges for primary industries in Western Australia’s north, and to propose innovative and Western Australia-specific policy, regulatory and other solutions to progress and improve prospects for northern development.

This WA-focused project is part of a wider collaboration between the CRCNA and the NT, Qld and WA Governments to support the development of new agricultural activity across northern Australia. The initiating parties have identified that policy, regulatory, budgetary and regional development challenges at Commonwealth and State/Territory levels require consideration, analysis, solution building and negotiated resolutions.
