Researching the social, economic and environmental impacts of Australia’s onshore gas industry

The Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA) is a collaboration between CSIRO, Commonwealth and state governments and industry established to undertake publicly-reported independent research. The purpose of GISERA is to provide quality assured scientific research and information to communities living in gas development regions focusing on social and environmental topics including: groundwater and surface water, biodiversity, land management, the marine environment, human health impacts and socio-economic impacts. The governance structure for GISERA is designed to provide for and protect research independence and transparency of research.

GISERA aims to:

  • carry out research and provide information for the benefit of Australian communities in CSG and shale gas regions and industry
  • inform governments and policy-makers of key research outcomes.
