Comments Off on Learning Markets and Indigenous Tourism: Action Research Pilot of Developing a Learning Markets Cluster and Sample Itinerary in Central Australia

This project applied and evaluated Participatory Action Research Methodology (PARM) in the context of developing a Learning Markets cluster of Indigenous tourism operators in Central Australia.This led to developing and testing a Learning Markets itinerary establishing links with specialist distribution systems relevant for the Learning Markets sector. It was expected that this would allow building the capacity of local Indigenous tourism operators to understand, service and capitalise on this specialist market sector in the future

The objective of the research was to develop a ‘Story Audit Tool’ to be used in the field with Indigenous people and other key informants to collect local stories for use in tourism enterprises and marketing; establish a prototype Intellectual Property agreement for commercial tourism for the use of images, film and written accounts of local Indigenous stories in tourism; and critically review the Story Audit Tool as applied in the pilot projects at Groote Eylandt and Hermannsburg.

The threat of climate change to prosperity in one country cannot be removed by the actions of that country alone. Effective action to moderate the risks of human-induced climate change requires large contributions to reductions in emissions from all major countries, and substantial contributions from the rest of the world as well. As a result, the search for effective climate change policy is partly a search for effective cooperation amongst countries of a kind and dimension that has never previously been known. This paper discusses that search for an international basis for effective climate change policy.

The Garnaut Climate Change Review—led by Professor Ross Garnaut—was first commissioned by Australia’s Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments in 2007, to conduct an independent study of the impacts of climate change on the Australian economy.  This paper focuses on five climate change action issues: the choice of discount rate (the valuation of the welfare of people living now relative to people living in future); the presence of uncertainty; the interaction between climate change, its mitigation and the growth of incomes and economic welfare in developing countries; what is an appropriate and proportionate Australian contribution to various levels of international mitigation effort; and the optimal balance between efforts on climate change mitigation and on climate change adaptation.
