Roadmap to a Desert Smart Town

Arid Lands Environment Centre


As one of the most remote and arid regional centres in Australia, Alice Springs faces a number of key barriers and limitations to its development. Yet, at the same time, there are many opportunities for increasing the resilience and sustainability of the town. The RoadMap to a desertSMART Town project and the RoadMap to a desertSMART Town 2013-18 report seek to outline these opportunities and the actions required to capitalise on them across the six areas of: energy, water, waste, built environment and planning, food, and transport. In doing so, it is hoped the RoadMap will make a significant contribution towards laying out the direction needed to make Alice Springs a more desert smart town.
