    (Organizers: Triple Helix Consulting, Australian River Restoration Centre; Hosts: Australian Academy of Science, Australian National University)

      This conference explored the knowledge that Australia needs to better manage its natural resources in an increasingly challenging policy, social and biophysical context.
      It did so through the lens of the research portfolio of Land & Water Australia. Leading Australian researchers and NRM practitioners were asked to distil the lessons from the 1800 or so projects/programs funded by LWRRDC/LWA over the last 20 years.
      The conference considered the specific knowledge content and remaining gaps in four broad themes as outlined below, and also how best to procure, coordinate and manage the associated research activities and outputs.

      Conference Sessions:
      Knowledge for managing Australian landscapes
      People, institutions and policy
      Sustaining primary industries
      Australian landscapes and ecosystems
