Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge

The projects in this theme aimed to inform decision making about tropical rivers and coasts. To manage and preserve our natural resources effectively, we need to have a level of understanding of how they will respond to (combinations of) various management actions. The large uncertainties involved in managing these complex systems are one of the major challenges of natural resource management.

In the first phase of research, projects in this theme sought to bring together information from the other themes to develop predictions based on realistic scenarios. During TRaCK’s synthesis and adoption year (2011-2012), the project team built on work started in this first  phase of research, to develop a framework supported by a software package that integrates the knowledge of researchers and natural resource management organisations in the Daly River catchment.
