Managing for sustainability in an uncertain world

Welcome to the homepage for the Risk and Sustainable Management Group (RSMG) based at the University of Queensland. RSMG was formed in 2004 as part of a Federation Fellowship research project, funded by the Australian Research Council.

RSMG is supported jointly by the School of Economics (Faculty of Business, Economics and Law) and the School of Political Science and International Studies (Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences).

Researching Sustainable Management
The problems of sustainable management of environmental resources are among the most pressing we face, but they are complicated by incomplete knowledge and by the uncertainty inherent in natural ecosystems and processes.

The research of RSMG is aimed at improving our understanding of all aspects of this process, from fundamental issues regarding uncertainty to the policy problems involved in developing a sustainable system of water entitlements for the Murray–Darling Basin.
