The South Australian Natural Resource Management Science Conference takes place this week at the University of Adelaide. Motto: Science for policy in a changing world. Hashtag: #SANRM18
Organized by the NRM Research and Innovation Network, the conference is a chance to showcase the NRM science underpinning environmental decision making, policy and management in South Australia.
The conference is a space for NRM researchers and practitioners to come together to consider the new challenges science faces in a post-truth world.
Big data, social media, and ‘alternative’ news sources are eroding traditional routes that turn science into policy action, how can our scientists and policy makers respond to these challenges to ensure better outcomes for South Australia? It is a unique platform for NRM researchers and practitioners to come together and share their work.
About the event
The South Australian Natural Resource Management Science Conference is a biennial showcase of the natural resource management science underpinning environmental decision making, policy and management in South Australia.
The barrier between science and decision making in NRM is well recognised. This biennial conference attracts attendees and speakers from across the research and NRM sectors. The inaugural 2014 conference attracted 500 delegates and 118 talks. The recent 2016 conference attracted over 1,000 delegates – and a whopping 285 presentations – over 3 days.
Presentations from the 2016 conference were live-streamed online during the event, and are now available on this site. Also check out the 2016 Abstracts Book. This publication includes all accepted abstracts for the 2016 SA NRM Science Conference and is a useful companion to the online presentations.
