Integrated environmental assessments in the north

31 July 2019

The 2019 Developing Northern Australia (DNA) Conference was held in Karratha in early July.

At the conference, Hub Leader Professor Michael Douglas facilitated a panel discussion that brought together Traditional Owners, academics and agriculturalists to exchange views on how integrated environmental assessments could support sustainable development in the north.

The NESP Northern, Threatened Species Recovery and Tropical Water Quality Hubs participated in the panel and reinforced the importance of using science to inform sustainable northern development.

This video gives a brief summary of the panel and the conference.
