Key findings

  • This project has developed and tested models that can provide a contiguous, consistent, robust and transparent analysis of water across northern Australia.
  • Water availability was assessed for three drainage divisions and 13 regions of northern Australia.
  • The climate is extreme, extremely seasonal and water-limited.
  • The recent climate should not be used as a guide to the future.
  • The future will be warmer; rainfall may be more intense; some areas may receive slightly less rainfall.
  • Known future development will have minimal regional consequences, but may be locally important.
  • Perennial rivers are vital assets.
  • Opportunities to increase water storage are limited.
  • There are opportunities for groundwater development but more data are required to determine extraction limits.
  • There are few quantified environmental flow thresholds. Ecosystems have adapted to the extreme, seasonal climate conditions and are highly responsive to any change.

The draft Local Planning Strategy was elaboreted with Western Australian Planning Commission’s (WAPC) Planning Schemes Manual, and was presented to Derby–West Kimberley’s Shire Council at the Ordinary meeting of Council held on the 29 April 2010. The Council resolved to forward the draft document to the WAPC for consent to advertise it for public comment. The WAPC considered the draft LPS on 9 April 2013 and consented for it to be released for a two-month public comment period. The LPS provides a strategic context for decision-making within the Shire and is the precursor to a new local planning scheme for the Shire of Derby–West Kimberley.

The WA EPA Bulletin (WA EPA, 2014) reiterates that building community confidence in the regulation of hydraulic fracturing requires a sound knowledge based on the hydrogeology in the target area, the receiving environment and the chemicals and techniques involved. Where the project is likely to impact an environmentally sensitive area or drinking water source area or any other water supplies, additional information on the local geological and hydrogeological is conditions required to assess the risk of all potential impacts, including to local water resources information (WA EPA, 2014).

Abstract : Civil engineers, just as architects, townplanners and geographers, are confronted with the experience of transformation of territory in its ideal as well as material dimensions. Following a non- dualist definition of the notion of experience according to the organic thought of A.N.Whitehead, it can   be pointed out that also in the approaches of other authors : J.Degermann, G.Vial, B.Vachon, P.Calame, there are five invariables within this notion. Is it only coincidence, or just an intellectual exercise? To reply to these questions, a research protocol has been adopted and applied to fifteen different approaches. The convergence of approaches confirms itself. But how do these five invariables work together? Part II firstly presents “organic thought”. On this scientific and philosophical basis, confirmed by the experiments of B.Aspect (1992, 2002) can be defined the notions of pure, hybrid and real potential. These notions enable the characterisation of geographical objects. This non-dualist approach is close to that of Augustin Berque. These bases enable application of the organic thought of A.N.Whitehead to geography and to constitute a territorial and institutional “tool box”, in prolongation of the approach initiated by W.Twitchett. These tools conjugate to define the convivial region. As a demonstration, this notion is applied to the region “Between Vosges and Ardennes”, in order to open a perspective on the European Union (EU27) in terms of morphological region or convivial region. This in turn enables a preliminary evaluation of such potential regions for around twenty other sub-continental entities and also to explain   the significance for the actors involved.

Abstract : This thesis concerns Indigenous agency, socio-political and cultural systems, and their reproduction by means of performances within the contemporary Australian state. It examines the cultural

politics of Indigeneity developed by Kimberley Aboriginal people through their regional organisations. It presents an ethnographic study of Indigenous modes of representation and organisation based on fieldwork carried out with the Kimberley Aboriginal Law and Culture Centre, a grass-roots Indigenous regional organisation federating thirty distinct groups, between 2005 and 2007. As such, the thesis gives particular attention to contemporary Indigenous practices of cultural representation and political action. The study aims at providing an anthropological understanding of the continuing cultural and political salience of the difference between Aboriginal people and Kartiyas. Engaging with the concept and practice of Law and Culture, initial research questions have been reframed in terms of the reproduction of the Kimberley as a set of Indigenous countries. Developing a relational approach, using a regional and a local perspective, the thesis provides with accounts of the relational field of interdependencies between   the Australian State and its Indigenous habitants. Experiential and historical constructions of Country, cultural logics of Indigenous ritual and political agency, processes of indigenisation of the Australian modernity and current models of Indigenous sustainable development in the Kimberley are successively examined in order to allow for a processual and performative understanding of Indigenous articulations of their subjectivity, agency and identity. The thesis develops a theoretical framework discussing intercultural and ontological models of Indigeneity and argues for a territorialising and performative approach to the definition of Indigenous singularities, drawing on the Indigenous concepts of Country and Law and Culture to frame anew notions of orality, culture and land.

Abstract: From the colonisation of Australia in 1788 until 1967 Aboriginal people were excluded from   the Australian political life. Since the 1967 referendum the government has been able to legislate on indigenous issues. Aboriginal people constitute about 2% of the population and they are almost absent from the main Australian political institutions, they are confined to a place determined by the government in the Australian political system. Claims from aboriginal activists are diverted by the government towards its own political choices. In response to claims for self-determination aboriginal governmental institutions were created. They were supposed to participate in the decision-making process but the government controls them and clearly expresses its disagreement when they take initiatives. The government also answered to claims for a treaty by imposing its own priority and its own way of negotiating, that is Reconciliation. Nonetheless, Aboriginal activists and leaders still promote the right to self-determination, the recognition of Aboriginal sovereignty as well as the negotiation of a treaty. Some have found ways to circumvent marginalisation using the political tools imposed by the government. Some try to obtain a betterment of their rights through the creation of protest movements, like the Aboriginal Provisional Government which is threatening to establish an Aboriginal State. Others choose to put pressure on the system via the United Nations authorities. By studying the marginalisation of Aboriginal people in the Australian political system and the responses to this marginalisation, it is possible to note that aboriginal claims for political recognition are linked with a process of definition of identity, a need for recognition of Aboriginal identity (or Aboriginality).
