Abstract

Socio-economic data from a mail survey are combined in a GIS with other layers, including the location of discharge sites and depth to saline groundwater. Landholders in the upper catchment have excellent knowledge of the current extent of salinity on their property. The extensive community education effort undertaken in this region has been successful in raising salinity awareness. But most landholders are not concerned about the impacts of dryland salinity and appear to believe they can live with salt. The research methodology and findings have important policy and management implications, and these are discussed
