Organisation profile

The Institute for Land, Water and Society (ILWS) undertakes internationally recognised integrated environmental, social and economic research for rural and regional areas. Formed in 2005, it combines research strengths in biophysical, social and economic research and has well-established partnerships with state and federal government departments, agencies and other tertiary institutions in Australia and overseas. Since inception ILWS has facilitated integration of environmental, social and economic research aims and practices. Our focus on facilitating systematic research has positioned ILWS to address issues that arise when managing social ecological systems that are characterised by uncertainty and complexity. Our researchers are involved in collaborative and commissioned work around Australia and the world, providing opportunities to influence local, regional, national and academic communities. Research is undertaken within four thematic (not mutually exclusive) areas: • Biodiversity Conservation • Environmental Water • Rural and Regional Communities • Sustainable Development (International)
