Prof Andrew Campbell

Andrew Campbell is the Director of the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods at Charles Darwin University in Darwin.  Professor Campbell was previously Managing Director of Triple Helix Consulting, and he has played influential roles in natural resource management in Australia for 25 years.  He has considerable research leadership experience, notably as Executive Director of Land & Water Australia from 2000-2006.  He has also had senior policy roles in land, water and biodiversity management as a senior executive in the Australian Government environment portfolio.  Andrew was instrumental in the development of Landcare, working with the National Farmers' Federation and the Australian Conservation Foundation to develop the proposal that catalysed the Decade of Landcare.  He was Australia's first National Landcare Facilitator from 1989-92, and he pioneered the concept of Whole Farm Planning as Manager of the privately-funded Potter Farmland Plan initiative in western Victoria in the 1980s.

Andrew Campbell is Chair of the Board of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN), a Visiting Fellow at the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University (ANU), a Commissioner with the IUCN’s World Commission on Protected Areas, a member of the Science Advisory Panel of Landcare Research New Zealand, and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He trained in forestry at Creswick and the University of Melbourne and rural sociology at Wageningen University in The Netherlands.  He has written widely on landcare, sustainability and knowledge management issues, and his books include The Getting of Knowledge (Land & Water Australia 2007), Landcare (Allen & Unwin 1994), and Planning for Sustainable Farming (Lothian 1991).  Professor Campbell is a sought-after public speaker who has delivered 75 invited conference keynote presentations over the last decade, 20 of them internationally.

Andrew maintains an involvement in his family farm in western Victoria, where his family have been farming since the 1860s.
