From the horses’ mouth: The past, present and future of collaboration to investigate our regions’ natural resources

Farmers and regional communities need appropriate evidence to effectively managing natural resources around them in the NSW Murray Valley.Three speakers, including two past and current farmers from the Mid-Murray Valley region around Deniliquin, NSW, will present their views of past research projects, the current status of research, and the future of how regional and local communities could work with various researchers to get this evidence.

Dr Wes Ward is an adjunct research fellow with CSU’s institute for Land, Water and Society. He investigates how researchers and other groups work together. He is currently investigating how university researchers can better work with landholders and agencies for better natural resource management in regional Australia. He is particularly experienced in collaborating in inter disciplinary research groups and, as a specialist science writer, runs a science communication business based on the NSW-Victoria border.
