The value of the knowledge that local traditions and science have generated about living sustainably in deserts is being promoted and extended through the "desert knowledge" movement in Australia. The Australian research reported here is largely underpinned by a neopopulist paradigm of development stressing respect for local knowledge, participatory practice and empowerment. Research in partnership with desert Aboriginal groups is contributing to their engagement with new livelihood opportunities.
