S W O T A N A Y L S I S LOCALE Strengths: o Reasonable climate and scenic beauty. As with food precautions, climate security allows the natives of Australia an opportunity to treat their financial and resource needs with leniency. o Low population densities except for some local exceptions. There is still room to experiment and expand in most of Australia. Land is available for new agricultural efforts. Weakness: o Liquidating natural assets (soil, forests, minerals, marine resources) to buy non-essentials and transient, throw-away technology. o Community level understanding of resource problems and economic opportunities of justifiable development of these resources. o Community appreciation of their own resources and the capabilities of those resources compared to the desire for western goodies which are inspired by the media and by overseas travel. o Responsible behavior on the part of resource users and the land owners.

Threats: o Rising sea levels and incidence of tropical cyclones due to climate change requiring fewer people settling in low-lying coastal areas. o Increasing incidence of bad weather (floods and droughts) in the metropolitan countries reduce agricultural production in those countries and this increases prices of imported foods presently essential to survival (rice, flour, tinned meat and fish), needing improved local food supplies and dietary information transfer. o Obtaining development funds is difficult for the private and government sectors in Australia. When projects are hampered by conflicts over land or other resources, investors are frightened away. By encouraging participation at the beginning, many of these conflicts may be resolved. Political Strengths: o Obtain foreign aid and assistance. The government of Australia has been highly successful at gaining funds, equipment, and guidance from the

metropolitan countries. This will be an obvious advantage in the development of an information economy. o Australians mediate internal disputes well. There is a unique sense of justice in the Pacific Island countries. This can be of great advantage providing they are willing to participate in a participatory process. o
