T40 JCU McNamara, K. et al. (2010) Assessing environmental research needs across three communities in the Torres Strait

T40 JCU McNamara, K. et al. (2010) Assessing environmental research needs across three communities in the Torres Strait
This report presents the environmental research needs of locals living in three island communities in the Torres Strait region. The project sought to conduct an assessment of environmental research needs in a number of Torres Strait communities, and also involve some TSRA Land and Sea Management Unit (LSMU) staff. The core aim of this project was to attempt to ensure that knowledge generated from future applied research arrangements is appropriate and useful for end-users throughout the Torres Strait. These end-users for future research include government agencies such as the TSRA, leaders and representatives (such as Island Councilors, Island Managers and PBC members), elders, and locals living in the communities where research is being conducted. This document provides a synthesis of the outputs of the project and forms a basis for future environmental research carried out in Torres Strait. [pdf 268.7 kb]
