Northern ecosystem connections

Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC research has been presented at an ecosytems and Indigenous wellbeing conference in Brisbane recently.

Dr Kamaljit Sangha, CRC researcher from Charles Darwin University, conducted the workshop at the Oceania Ecosystem Services forum. The workshop explored connections between Indigenous wellbeing and natural systems, with a focus on various marketable and non-marketable costs and benefits of managing natural landscapes, especially fire in northern Australia. 

Outcomes will include an Indigenous ecosystem service framework encompassing the benefits of managing fire and other natural hazards, which otherwise cause huge costs to many Indigenous communities living in remote locations, as well as the government.

More information is available about the workshop at, while the full details of the Enhancing remote north Australia community resilience project are on the project page.
