Australian National University: Completed
Summary | Presentations |
My project concerned regional planning for sustainable natural
resources management. Field work for this research was primarily
conducted in relation to two major case studies - the Cape York
Peninsula Land Use Strategy (CYPLUS) and the Regional Forest
Agreement (RFA) process in New South Wales. The case studies were
analysed using criteria drawn from adaptive management, ecosystem
management, policy, and planning literature.
A workshop was also organised on stakeholder processes in three
regional planning projects in the Australian rangelands: the
Rangeways project in the WA Goldfields region, the Central
Highlands Regional Resource Use Planning Project in Central
Queensland, and the NSW Regional Forest Agreement process. Data
from this workshop contributed to the analysis of the opportunities
and constraints facing regional resource use planning.
I also contributed to a consultancy on the role of social,
economic, legal, policy and institutional R&D for natural
