MEET OUR ECONOMISTS
Stephanie Black (webinar MC) is the Program Lead for the Natural Resource Economics section. She has 15 years’ experience working across the public and private sectors providing economic analysis and advice.
Dale Ashton - Senior Economist and Director of the Farm Analysis program will provide insight into how ABARES runs national farm survey programs, including the recent Natural resource management and drought resilience survey. Dale will discuss how we design and implement surveys, and communicate the findings while closely engaging with the agricultural sector.
Fred Litchfield - Economist, will walk us through recent work on agricultural labour issues, which have become a hot topic particularly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This work has included changing the way that we present our data analysis, moving into the space of interactive dashboards to support evidence based policy.
To achieve this, we have assembled a rare concentration of scientific and economic expertise in government. The majority of ABARES staff – including those in senior executive roles – are trained economists and scientists. We provide analysis and advice to our colleagues in the department and to other stakeholders on issues ranging from management of Australia’s forestry and fisheries resources, water markets in the Murray-Darling Basin, to farm performance, productivity, and agricultural production and trade. ABARES is also a leading agency in providing training in applied economics and science to graduates, leveraging more than 70 years of accumulated corporate knowledge. Find out more at ABARES website.
