Whats all the Buzz? Managing competing interests in developing Western Australias beekeeping industry
An innovative and motivated PhD candidate is needed to develop new approaches for a ’license to operate’ tailored to the Western Australian beekeeping industry. The project will examine the social, political and ecological barriers and opportunities for securing optimal hive site accessibility (license to operate) now and into the future. A license to operate is a priority for ensuring the productivity and profitability of the WA beekeeping industry, and for negotiating with industry, hobbyists, the general public, and other stakeholders over the reform needed to expand the industry in light of competing interests. This project serves to increase productivity and profitability of beekeepers, and to increase understanding of the competing interests in the management of honey bee hive sites in WA. The candidate will identify solutions and develop tools for viable and harmonious co-habitation between commercial beekeeping given a range of anthropogenic factors across spatially and ecologically-diverse native environments and commercial beekeeping arrangements that are distinctive to WA. The successful candidate will have scope to tailor the project in terms of methodology and theoretical approach to aid in the development of a productive and profitable WA beekeeping industry. http://www.crchoneybeeproducts.com/training-and-education/post-graduates-optional/project-1-3-whats-the-buzz-managing-competing-interests-in-developing-was-beekeeping-industry/
