Presented by Visiting Scholars, ECU Researchers, Government and Industry.
The rangelands occupy a vast proportion of Western Australia, where livestock production now occurs in tandem with tourism, nature conservation, mining and Indigenous ownership. How will managing the rangelands need to reform, particularly in the face of climate change, the carbon economy, proposals for new agricultural enterprises, and alternative land uses?
We will hear a range of perspectives on rangelands management to help frame an understanding of the Rangelands Reform agenda.
From presentations and panel sessions we hope to produce a summary of key points that might be used for broader discussion.
