EconSearch Completed Project

Project: Socio-economic impacts of the forest industry 2015/16 - Green Triangle (2017)

Client: Forest & Wood Products Australia (FWPA)

Summary: EconSearch worked with a project team led by Associate Professor Jacki Schirmer (University of Canberra) to produce socio-economic impact reports for each major forestry region of Australia. The Green Triangle region, covering part of South Australia and part of Victoria, was one such region.

EconSearch carried out a survey of forest industry businesses in the region and modelled the direct and flow-on economic activity contributed by the industry using extended input-output models. Business activities included in the survey were: growing and management, silviculture, harvest and haulage, and primary and further processing.
