Economic assessment of adaptation to climate change at Dhimurru IPA
Projects in this theme
Aboriginal communities living within and around Dhimurru's Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) in East Arnhem Land strongly rely on a hybrid economy revolving around traditional and non-traditional activities. Global environmental processes such as climate change are likely to alter this economic model. The proposed project uses market, non-market and participatory appraisals to explore how Aboriginal communities would adapt to these changes and how their economic, social and cultural welfare may be affected.
