The Desert Knowledge CRC will continue to contribute to developing the following broad outcomes in the national interest:
- Sustainable livelihoods for desert people that are based on natural resource and service enterprise opportunities that are environmentally and socially appropriate
- 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
- Thriving desert regional economies that are based on desert competitive advantages, bringing together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities, government and industry.
We will apply social science insights into governance, human capacity and the design of appropriate institutions to all these outcomes.
