What's next for the NAER Hub?


The Northern Australia Environmental Resources Hub has been busy over recent months planning activities for its second phase of research.

Thursday, 21 January 2016 

This will build on the Hub’s current research plan, which involves ten short-term projects.The research programme is organised around a number of issue-driven, regional case studies, including: landscape-scale studies covering savanna and aquatic ecosystems and biodiversity; land and water planning for agricultural and infrastructure development, and Indigenous land management. 

The current projects have been progressing strongly since mid-2015.  The Hub will deliver research totalling $23.88m over the next six years under the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Programme (NESP).
