Standing up for Central Australia


The Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) is a community-based organisation, developing and delivering environmental and sustainability initiatives in Central Australia. For more than 30 years, ALEC has been a strong voice for the conservation and responsible management of land, water and natural resources. Our vision is 'healthy futures for arid lands and people' - your support can make this happen.

Building Community


We are working to build community resilience in Central Australia. At the heart of this are initiatives that connect people to our arid environment and a community committed to living here sustainably. Initiatives include: desertSMART COOLmob, desertSMART EcoFair and the Alice Springs Community Garden.

Conservation in the Outback


Human survival is linked to the health of our natural environment. We work hard to ensure that future generations will enjoy clean air, water, productive land and biodiversity. ALEC is responsible for the conservation initiative Biodiversity Matters, and advocates for responsible natural resource management.

Clean Energy and Climate


Climate predictions for Central Australia indicate significant future challenges. Energy is at the heart of this issue. Currently 90% of the Nothern Territory is under application for exploration of oil and gas, the national radioactive waste dump is proposed north of Tennant Creek, whilst the Northern Territory has some of the greatest opportunities for renewable energy.

ALEC Enterprises


In a rapidly changing world, community organisations must adapt to remain effective. ALEC is embracing an entrepreneurial approach with its new initiative Arid Edge Environmental Services, and is developing the business case for community solar in Alice Springs.
