Phase 1 Projects

Outcomes The Knowledge and Adoption team sought to maximize local ownership of TRaCK among the key end users.  It achieved this by ensuring that land-holders and managers, natural resource management groups and local communities were provided with opportunities to have input and participation in the research. The team ensured that research outputs fed directly into the broader initiatives, and policy and decision making processes of regional natural resource management bodies and state and Commonwealth natural resource management and conservation agencies.
