Two approaches to learning about the structure and function of Australia's small towns are discussed in this paper: the community studies approach, which has a deep understanding of the forces operating within local communities but lacks a strong policy perspective; and the sustainability based approach,...
While there are as yet no direct drinking water reuse projects in Australia, there are many valuable aspects of such systems that may be particularly useful in small communities. The Australian Guidelines for Water Recycling - Augmentation of Drinking Water Supplies report a 9.5 log10...
In this book are case studies of community level approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation covering communities and governance, farming communities, economics and water. The cases are based on research being undertaken across Australian communities and show how a social learning approach can bring...
Australian conservation scientists, managers and decision makers must come to grips with anthropogenic climate change, imposed upon an already variable regional climate system. Pre- and postinstrumental records and climate proxies indicate that Australia has experienced wet and dry cycles over intradecadal to millennial time scales....
Australian agriculture both contributes to and is vulnerable to climate change. It is Australia's second highest greenhouse gas emitting sector, although this does not account for carbon sequestration, and is the sector most vulnerable to climate change with production expected to fall in the absence...
This research report explores ways that landholders can improve profitability, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and deliver broader environmental benefits at the same time. These objectives are known as ‘multiple benefits.'
This paper documents and evaluates collaborative learning processes aimed at developing farmer’s knowledge, skills and aspirations to use seasonal climate forecasting (SCF). Workshops encouraging gorup discussion and collaborative learning were held across Australian sugar production regions in 2012.
Unmanned aerial survey drones equipped with sensors are increasingly being used by corporate farmers, agronomists, biologists, and environmental ecologists to make important production decisions.
The model provides a basis for separating the effects of historical climate, market and policy shocks on the southern Murray-Darling Basin (sMDB) region, and for simulating the effects of potential future shocks.
This discussion paper is about the use of scenario analysis by companies and other financial actors to manage, disclose, and regulate climate-related risks and opportunities in Australia. It suggests how Australian practice can be consistent with our international climate commitments under the Paris Agreement and...
