BBSU Activities


  • BBSU has been actively involved since its inception with stakeholders in scoping research needs for Botany Bay and this work is progressing with a workshop on Saturday 28 February organized by BBSU.
  • The former Director of BBSU (Professor John Benzie) and Professor Tony Underwood (Sydney University) were members of the advisory committee in the formulation of the New South Wales Government’s Draft Botany Bay Strategy.
  • BBSU engaged the views of 24 key individuals representing a wide range of stakeholders on an Interim Advisory Committee that formulated research issues:
  • One major initiative is to bring people together to help form research networks, A Workshop Botany Bay – Moving Forward will be opened by the UNSW Vice-Chancellor, is on Saturday, 28 February 2004. This is being convened to move forward from previous studies, to identify research gaps and capabilities of researchers, to formulate a draft set of research priorities The Sutherland Environment Centre is advertising the program, (http://www.ssec.org.au/Resources/forums/UNSW2004).
  • The Workshop convenor is Associate Professor Alberto Albani.
  • The key questions for participants are “what we don’t know, and how research could contribute to making the study area more sustainable”.
  • Next steps – after the workshop a report on research recommendations will be posted on this website (probably early April). Public submissions on research needs, priorities, information on relevant studies already conducted are actively sought and should be sent to the Director (j.black@unsw.edu.au).
