This report summarises the findings from a two-year research project into the governance challenges posed by large scale resource development in mining-intensive regions of Australia.

Unlike the narrower term government, governance applies in situations where authority and responsibility for the tasks of governing - including planning, allocation of resources, administration and service provision - are not vested only in the state but are dispersed among actors from various levels of government, the private sector and the community interacting in joint networks, partnerships or collaborations. This research project captures the perspectives of these different governance stakeholders.
