Issue 293 – Restoration through science
In this issue of ECOS, we look at how science is helping to improve our environment and industries. Read on to find out how CSIRO research is leading the way.
Australian red meat stakes a claim for a carbon neutral future
Australia’s red meat industry has set itself a goal to be carbon neutral by 2030. CSIRO is working with Meat & Livestock Australia on the science to support this ambition.
Nitrogen for nothing and your protein for free

Researchers trust their tools when it comes to looking after the Great Barrier Reef
Deteriorating water quality is one of the biggest threats to the Great Barrier Reef. Vital protection and recovery efforts are taking place in the catchments adjoining this national treasure's coastline.
System-wide approach needed for drought resilient irrigation
A new CSIRO study provides a deeper understanding of how Australian irrigators have adapted and responded to drought.
Science for a water-secure world in a changing climate
CSIRO's Jane Coram unpacks how we are harnessing digital technologies to better understand the availability of water, now and into an uncertain future.
