Landscape Futures Program
Viable landscapes

The Landscape Futures Program at the University of Adelaide, led by Professor Wayne Meyer, has been established to respond to the growing need for integrated solutions to the management of natural resources.

A dynamic team of researchers, teachers, managers and communicators is developing the Landscape Futures Program, starting with six researchers and 12 postgraduate students. The Director, Professor Wayne Meyer, holds the Chair of Natural Resource Science at the University of Adelaide, and has developed a systems-wide research approach to explore management options for improving agricultural productivity while conserving and restoring natural ecosystems.

The Landscape Futures Program aims to develop:

  • new methods and models for landscape futures analysis that better inform managers and policy makers of conservation, repair and maintenance options for sustainable land use;

  • improved information systems to assess and monitor natural resource condition and provide a basis for projecting likely environmental condition into the future;

  • skills and knowledge for planning, implementing and monitoring for improved natural resource management.
