This project will assist in the preservation of agricultural productivity during land use change.

The study will result in developing methods for most equitably and/ or cost-effectively preserving agricultural productivity.

A novel model to estimate the impact of Coal Seam Gas extraction on agro-economic returns

The interference of CSG with agriculture on a large scale has raised concerns about the impact of CSG on farmland, food security, water resources and the socio-economic environment within the affected regions and beyond. This paper presents a newly developed spatial model which provides order of magnitude figures of the impact of CSG activity on gross economic returns of current agricultural land uses in a given region over the time of CSG production.
