Best of both worlds? seeking a sustainable regional employment solution to fly-in fly-out operations in the Pilbara

15 Jun 2004

The primary objective of this research was to work with key stakeholders and the communities affected by Fly-in/Fly-out (FIFO) operations to develop a more sustainable and mutually advantageous future by arriving at strategies to maximize identified benefits and minimize identified negative impacts of FIFO in the Pilbara. Pilbara Regional Council’s proposal to undertake this research stemmed from concerns aired by family and community members, indigenous people, service providers and business operators regarding the increasing incidence of FIFO operations in the Pilbara and the lack of action by stakeholders to address these concerns. Grant funding was secured for this project by the Pilbara Regional Council in collaboration with Consultancy North, from the Western Australian Lotteries Commission.
