Trends in natural resource management in Australia’s Monsoonal North: the beef industry
This report by Dr Gabriel Crowley, Cairns Institute Adjunct Principal Research Fellow, describes trends in the beef industry in the Monsoonal North. It aims to provide the region’s natural resource management (NRM) groups with an understanding of how best to support the industry, undertake the changes required to improve its environmental sustainability and economic viability, and to provide it with resilience in the face of increasing development pressures and climate change. This report charts the industry’s history and development; describes its current condition and the pressures and drivers it is experiencing; and explores how these are likely to change in the near future.
