CSIRO research in landscape management looks to address challenges that face future generations
We are working on the search for solutions to our mounting air, land and water pollution problems.
We're helping answer the sustainable resource and development questions critical to the future of society, industry and the environment.
Australians have stewardship of a beautiful, diverse and unique environment.
Positioning Australia to respond to a changing climate, securing supplies of water to meet our domestic, agricultural and industrial needs, protecting our globally unique biodiversity and providing positive futures for Australian communities are the critical issues facing the nation.
A positive CSIRO response to these challenges and opportunities will involve systems understanding, development and application of new technologies and careful balancing of economic development with ecological conservation.
