Sustainable Regional Development in the Bowen Basin - A Strategic Issues Paper

This project was undertaken by CQUniversity during 2008, at the request of the Minerals Council of Australia and the Queensland Resources Council. The aim was to provide a useful analysis of the socio-economic issues confronting the Bowen Basin region, as it experiences rapid industrial growth associated with the ongoing development of coal reserves, whilst striving toward sustainable development. Key components included:

• an overview of the contextual framework of the challenge of achieving sustainable development in the Bowen Basin;

• a high-level socioeconomic characterisation of the Bowen Basin, with an emphasis on ‘headline’ issues pertinent to the future planning and sustainability of the region;

• a profile of the mining sector and industry within the Bowen Basin (including the results of a survey of mining companies with operations in the Basin;

• a targeted analysis of the key trends and issues facing the region; and

• recommendations for sustainable development of the Basin into the future. Project outputs include a comprehensive final report (some 165 pages), and an accompanying executive brief (20 pages). Both documents are currently pending approval for public release.
