Environment and Livelihoods
The Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL) is a Tier 1 institute that consolidates CDU's environmental and natural resource management research.
We are multidisciplinary in our approach, integrating insights from the natural, physical, spatial and social sciences to explore the complex interconnections within and between social and environmental systems. We are also transdisciplinary, in that we often work collaboratively with intended end-users along the full spectrum from defining research questions through to applying results. Our livelihoods approach emphasises the relationships between people and country (including Indigenous people), in particular the way we derive a living from lands and seas, and how that affects the management of natural resources.
The Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods is building on solid foundations, with an exciting research agenda. We are working with our partners in northern and central Australia and the region, to develop new knowledge to:
better understand the ecological functions and processes of unique ecosystems — terrestrial, aquatic and marine;
inform decisions about how best to manage natural resources in government, industry and the community; and
underpin innovation, in developing new more sustainable technologies, policies and approaches.
