Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program

DEA recently submitted a submission on the Industry Research and Development (Beetaloo
Cooperative Drilling Program) Instrument.

DEA has raised five key concerns about the Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program:

  1. The program will accelerate climate change, increasing morbidity and mortality in Australia and globally
  2. The program will damage Aboriginal health and participation in democracy
  3. The program is a threat to NT Government integrity
  4. The program undermines NT government policy climate change commitments
  5. The program replaces opportunities for renewable energy development and export which would lead to much better health outcomes
