Our environment and natural resources work
The area of natural resources and the environment is broad. Many of the diverse and challenging issues that the sector covers, such as water buybacks, land use zoning, food security, the viability of regional communities and resource ownership are highly emotive for clients and stakeholders. Often this emotion can get in the way of effective policy and management of natural resources and the environment and result in barriers to change and adjustment. To manage this, we get to the heart of problems and apply economic frameworks in a rational, integrated and practical manner.
We advise policy makers and other parties on a broad range of environmental and resource problems. This provides us with a unique understanding of the institutional arrangements governing natural resource and environmental management across Australia. We form project teams drawing on the diverse experience of our consultants and our wide network of technical specialists.
Specific areas where we work regularly with clients include:
- Climate change adaptation and mitigation
- Environmental policy
- Natural resource management (NRM), agriculture and biosecurity.
