Resources & Communities
The team furthers regional resilience and prosperity by providing robust scientific evidence on the social and economic effects of industry changes and transitions in regional Australia.
We undertake research across a range of domains including energy, mining, agriculture, water, waste and resource recovery, with special skills in contested industries.
Our research focuses on managing transitions in place-based contested spaces as a consequence of industry and policy changes or new and emerging technologies in the energy, mining, waste, and emerging resources sectors.
This knowledge supports policy decision making, industry best practice, and government initiatives, to enable resilient regional industries and robust and flourishing communities.
