How we manage our land will have a significant impact on our ability to address biodiversity decline and Australia's net greenhouse gas emissions.
Also, with population growth the food production challenge is set in an environment where land, water, energy and labour resources are more constrained and competition for these resources is more intense. Combined with significatn uncertinaties arising from climate change, research is needed to help guide Australia's response to these challenges and how they imapct upon the fragile natural resources that characterise our landscape.
CSIRO's research focus in landscape management looks to address these challenges by developing innovative technologies and practices and to inform policy. This will ensure Australia's unique landscapes are managed sustainably to deliver our food, fibre, biodiversity, water and carbon objectives.
