Environmental Analysis

Environmental Analysis Pty Ltd was established in 2006 to provide expert professional advice and analysis services about environmental policy and management in Australia.

The director of the company, Dr Martin Wardrop, has experince in the Commonwealth government as a policy and program manger and has also been a senior lecturer in natural and rural systems management at the University of Queensland.

My most recent activity is publication in December 2016 of an overviiew report entitled "Ecological Resilience: Managing Natural Resources in Australia". The paper examines ecological resilience and its application to public policy and program development and managing the environment in Australia.

Resilience thinking is increasingly being used by governments to help with policy and program development and to support management of the natural environment. In Australia it has been used as a new approach to planning for natural resource management at the regional scale and to encourage greater use of a systems approach to social and ecological systems
