This study into the relationship between community sustainability and the extractive industries has been prepared for the Regional Development Council at an interesting point in Western Australia's resource development.

The growth of the Western Australian resources industry from 1998 to 2008 barely paused with the impact of the global financial crisis and in 2010 demand for oil, gas and minerals is again growing. Importantly, the demand is supported by projections for increased production that is catalysing growth in the State's Northwest and Midwest. The report is in three parts: Executive Summary, Report and Appendices.
