There is a lot of interest in developing northern Australia while also caring for the unique Australian landscape. However, trying to decide how to develop and protect at the same time can be a challenge. This report describes the modelling tools available to inform these decisions, including integrated models, frameworks, and decision support tools, but there are so many different kinds that it’s difficult to determine which might be best suited to inform different decisions.
As an institute of advanced studies in the humanities and social sciences The Cairns Institute plays a major role in research training. The Institute warmly welcomes enquiries from people interested in higher degree research where we provide excellent opportunities for supervision, networking and mentoring of research students through the seminar series and other activities run by the Institute.
The Institute’s research addresses critical points of social and environmental transformation in the tropics. We aim to be visionary, multidisciplinary, and driven by principles of social justice and reciprocity
The Institute offers multiple opportunities for learning via higher degree research programs, focused non-award professional development and short courses, and collaborative research
The Institute informs and supports public debate about sustainable development and other issues shaping life in the tropics, creating democratic spaces for the dissemination and discussion of ideas and knowledge
