The two key collaborative projects for the Ten Deserts in 2016 are:


The Ten Deserts Initiative will build collaborative relationships across the arid lands of the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

The Ten Deserts Initiative will:

– Organise an annual face-to-face workshop/event to bring desert land managers together to share skills, knowledge and prioritise collaborative projects across the arid lands of NT/SA and WA.

– Create and manage a contact list of desert land management organisations including Ten Deserts Executive Group, Working Group and Partner Organisations.

– Facilitate quarterly phone link up meetings to develop and maintain the strategic direction of the Ten Deserts Initiative

– Identify and support opportunities for cross- border and cross-tenure collaborations across the Ten Deserts and the arid and semi-arid country in between.

– Coordinate regular communications between working group members and partner organisations to increase the collaborative potential of organisations working in Australia’s deserts.
