The Desert Knowledge CRC is a research and brokerage institution that links researchers with 28 partners. The Desert Knowledge CRC focuses these research efforts on creating useful outcomes with commercial application for desert people, communities and our partners. These partners provide in-kind and cash support to the Desert Knowledge CRC.
The DK-CRC exists to:
- Provide sustainable livelihoods for desert people that are based on natural resource and service enterprise opportunities that are environmentally and socially appropriate;
- Encourage sustainable remote desert settlements that support the presence of desert people, particularly remote Aboriginal communities, as a result of improved and efficient governance and access to services; and
- Foster thriving desert regional economies that are based on desert competitive advantages, bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, government and industry.
- Apply social science insights into governance, human capacity and the design of appropriate institutions to all these outcomes.
