Phase 2 Research

Six lines of enquiry have been identified as Our Land and Water’s first wave of of research for Phase 2 of the Challenge (2019–2024). These were chosen because they have the potential to rapidly progress the Challenge mission.

Following a Registration of Interest process (February 2019), co-design teams have been built for these lines of enquiry. Some lines of enquiry are still looking to connect with stakeholders.

These lines of enquiry respond to 5 of Our Land and Water’s 9 strategic areas and will contribute to 7 of 24+ activity areas planned over the next 5 years. There are many projects yet to be developed, so there will be further opportunities for involvement over the next 5 years.
