Rural change as a result of coal seam gas developments and the associated economic impacts

July 1st, 2013

At any given point in time, a community or region may appear static. Their populations, economies and identities may give the appearance that this is how they always were. This is not the case; history shows that a region’s population, economy and identity changes considerably over time.

This project aimed to synthesise existing knowledge on the nature of rural socio-economic transitions occurring as a result of resource developments, and track the social impacts of regional economic change.
