KEY RESEARCH OUTPUTS Photo: Tim Acker REGIONAL ECONOMIES RESEARCH PROGRAM z We built an evidence base on population mobility and barriers to mobility in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.1 z We produced a population modelling tool for remote communities and established that very remote communities are actually growing rapidly. This improved basis for enumerating Aboriginal people in remote areas can enable more accurate allocation of government funding. z We developed an InputOutput model of remote Australia, which can help remote people and local and state governments transition to alternative futures as reductions in the mining labour force continue to affect regional and remote communities. z We produced a Remote Community Mining Toolkit designed to enable communities to prepare and plan for the social, cultural and economic impacts of major resource developments, from start-up through to closure stages. z We built an evidence base on the socio-economic impacts of long distance commuting (LDC) on source communities.2 z We developed strategies and advice for communitybased enterprises to improve energy management in enterprise buildings and reducing costs for businesses.3 Over the life of CRC-REP, we collaborated with 135 SMEs
