Scarce Resources

Search UniSA Research


Living within limits

Australia needs to develop management systems, capacity and know-how to support sustainable living under the conditions of changing demographics and demand for constrained natural and human resources; fragile and threatened ecosystems; commoditised cultural resources; and significant, unpredictable and extreme climatic changes. Scarce Resources brings together multidisciplinary researchers working with communities to create and implement sustainable strategies and solutions that restore, protect and optimise social, cultural, economic and environmental resources.
