About the report
In response to community concerns about environmental protection eriss has made consultation and communication tasks an integral component of research activities. We recognise that our research program needs to be developed in cooperation with the communities potentially affected, as well as regulators, mining companies and wetland managers. Thus the outcomes of our research programs need to be communicated in forms that are suitable for a diverse audience. In particular we have taken increased steps to ensure that Aboriginal people in the region are included in these processes, and where possible are able to participate in research projects.
