EconSearch Completed Project

Project: Review of the FloraSearch project’s economic modelling and integration with GIS (2007)

Client: Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation

Summary: A review of the Regional Industry Potential Analysis (RIPA) component of the FloraSearch project is provided in this report. RIPA involved the development of a spatial analysis tool to evaluate opportunities at the regional scale for new large-scale industries based on products from woody perennial production systems. The material for review included the economic modelling of the potential of biomass industries across the dryland agricultural regions of southern Australia.
