The 'Structural adjustment in agriculture and capacity to implement catchment plans' project reports on regional case studies in the Wanilla catchment SA, the Kamarooka region Vic, Lake Warden catchment WA and the Upper Billabong Creek catchment NSW which examined the capacity of local and wider communities to change in a manner that might achieve improved salinity control. This technical note briefly identifies the lessons learned from the case studies that may assist in policy interventions that address the social and economic impacts of salinity in farming communities.
