Abstract

There are two pilot studies occurring within the Blackwood basin: 'Roads & Salinity' and 'Beyond Fencing'. 'Roads & Salinity' is aimed at addressing problems of salinity and water logging of roadways in Western Australia. The 'Beyond Fencing' study will look at the feasibility of using market-based mechanisms to encourage participation as individuals or co-ops within conservation nodes.
