Australian Rangeland Society 20th Biennial Conference
ANU, Canberra - 2-5 September, 2019
'Resilient future rangelands: integrating environment and livelihoods’
Established 42 years ago, the Australian Rangeland Society (ARS) returns to Canberra for its 20th biennial Conference in September 2019.
Australia’s rangelands cover more than 70% of the country, and make a significant contribution to Australia’s economy.
More commonly known as the ‘outback’, rangelands are home to many of Australia’s Indigenous people. They are culturally important to all Australians and a key component of Australia’s identity.
The Conference will bring together industry representatives and practitioners, researchers, and policy makers.
It will consider issues such as management of rangelands, improving land use productivity, diversifying livelihoods, sustainable land use, social licence to operate the importance of Indigenous local knowledge, and of women, to enabling resilient rangelands and coping with change.
Established 42 years ago, the Australian Rangeland Society returns to Canberra for its 20th biennial conference in September 2019. ARS is an independent and non-aligned association connecting people who care about improving sustainable management of natural resource, life and business in the rangelands.
