Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water
In the latest in a series of engagements for the Queensland Government's resources departments, we worked closely with the Department of Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water to edit, design and launch a pivotal report for an independent expert panel.
In 1938, engineer Sir John Bradfield posited Queensland’s arable land could be expanded by piping water from where it falls most—in the tropics—down to its arid centre. It’s a dream that’s held its proponents enthralled and other stakeholders concerned about its far-reaching implications for established industries and the environment.
The Bradfield panel is chaired by Prof Ross Garnaut—eminent economist and subject matter expert in climate change policy responses. The panel was commissioned to research and report on the scheme’s viability. Our work included direct liaison with the panel, and the editing, design and printing of the report.
Our work continues now to launch the report through stakeholder engagement and strategy, and to translate the findings into usable insights via publications and digital and video assets.
