People and the Economy

An understanding of the socio-economic systems and their relationships with the environment is a key component in assessing the implications of future developments in northern Australia.  This project studied a range of economic, cultural, institutional and human-capital aspects of northern populations while looking for differences and similarities among communities in order to describe how the region’s socio-economic systems might change under different future development scenarios.

The project was led by Dr Natalie Stoeckl from James Cook University in Townsville. Dr Stoeckl was supported by Owen Stanley from James Cook University, as well as researchers from Charles Darwin University (Dean Carson, Andrew Taylor and Suzanne Campbell) and CSIRO Townsville (Silva Larson and Kostas Alexandridis).
