NRM in the Rangelands Conference
Desert Channels Queensland and the Australian Rangelands Society are excited to be hosting the NRM in the Rangelands Conference – shaping our future, 2021. The Rangelands cover about 80% of the Australian interior, spanning 3100 km east to west and 1400 km north to south. This vast region contains varied landscapes, including savannas, woodlands, shrub lands grasslands and wetlands. Water supply is often sporadic with many river systems draining into internal lakes, in particular Lake Eyre.
Over the last seven years drought has affected much of the Rangelands and the focus has turned to improving future resilience of the environment, the communities and industry. The conference will showcase and share emerging ideas and innovations so we can collectively contribute to improving the condition of the Rangelands.
As the impacts of COVID continue, the conference will be held on a virtual platform with a face-to-face hub in Longreach for those who can make it. This will allowing everyone to attend in someway, depending on their location and current travel restrictions. The face-to-face hub will be held in the Civic Centre, Longreach, Queensland.
