Natural resource management in the Burdekin Dry Tropics: social and economic issues

1 Jan 2003
Description

A review of social and economic constraints to sustainable natural resources management (NRM) in the Burdekin Dry Tropics Qld identified a range of policy directions and actions to encourage wider adoption of sustainable NRM practices. In particular, the research identified the need to manage the social and economic pressures and dependencies on the natural resource base, to maximise the benefits of policy implementation at a broad regional level while encouraging flexibility at sub-regional and site-specific circumstances, to provide consistent policy signals over time, to integrate existing policies and actions across multiple NRM and environmental management issues, to enhance understandings of NRM issues among landholders and the community at large, and to undertake research into the real economic benefits of a range of NRM practices.
