Project Details


Policymakers and civil society in Australia have recognised the need for proactive measures to enhance Indigenous well-being (Australian Government, 2008; Stiglitz et al. 2009). Consequently, in recent years, there has been increasing interest among researchers on the well-being of Indigenous Australians (Biddle, 2014; Jayasinghe et al., 2020a, 2020b; Manning et al., 2016; Selvanathan et al., 2020). Nevertheless, to the best of our knowledge, the energy poverty, transport poverty, and well-being nexus of Indigenous Australians remains unexplored. To this end, the proposed project fills the gap in research concerning energy and transport poverty and wellbeing nexus, using rigours econometric techniques. This project significantly contributes to the literature on Indigenous well-being. The findings of this project will provide useful insights to policy makers to formulate policies to enhance fair and sustainable transition towards cleaner and affordable energy for Australians.
