National Dryland Salinity Program (NDSP)
“to research, develop and extend practical approaches to effectively manage dryland salinity across Australia”
The National Dryland Salinity Program was initiated and managed by Land & Water Australia on behalf of a consortium of partners. The program was a collaborative research and development effort that investigated the causes of, and solutions to, the national problem of dryland salinity. The program concluded in 2004.
The first five-year phase of the program was completed in 1998. It focused on improving our understanding of the causes of dryland salinity and on establishing a collaborative national focus on the R&D effort.
A larger, second five-year phase was completed between 1998 and 2003. This phase continued to identify and research the knowledge gaps in our understanding of the causes and impacts of dryland salinity. It also investigated socio-economic arrangements that encourage or impede appropriate management of salinity, new production options using saline resources and management of saline landscapes.
Information on the program is available from Land and Water Australia.
NDSP produced, with input from a wide range of stakeholders, an integrated resource on dryland salinity research as well as a policy document stemming from 10 years of integrated research into dryland salinity.
