Knowledge and learning

Many people in Australia's tropical savannas live in remote areas and find it difficult to access relevant information about savannas landscapes and their management.

Since its inception in 1996, the Tropical Savannas Cooperative Research Centre has developed several initiatives to make land management research more easily accessible to research users including land managers, agency staff and students.

A key goal is to support universities in northern Australia to produce graduates who are well equipped to deal with sustainable land management issues in the tropical savannas.

The Centre has also developed curriculum resources and materials that enhance and improve the understanding of Australia’s tropical savannas for primary school children.
