Keeping the community informed
Communication to stakeholders
Supervising Scientist staff deliver results to the Alligator Rivers Region Technical Committee
We provide ongoing assurance to the local and wider community that the Alligator Rivers Region remains fully protected from the impacts of uranium mining. We do this through a range of communication activities designed to deliver the outcomes of our supervision and assement, as well as the results of our research and monitoring.
We maintain a relationship and communicate directly with various stakeholders, including the owners, managers and users of the Alligators Rivers Region and its wetlands, in order to better understand and address their specific concerns and expectations.
Our staff also attend and present papers at a range of conferences, and participate in festivals, displays (such as the Bowali Visitors Centre), school talks, open days, exhibitions and on-country knowledge-sharing with local indigenous people at the local, national and international level.
You can read more about these events in Supervising Scientist annual reports (Communication and liaison chapter).
