People on country, healthy landscapes and Indigenous economic futures
People on country aims to transfer skills to land and sea management groups to address two major issues: how their activities are improving Indigenous well-being, and delivering better natural resource management on Aboriginal land and sea country. Working in partnership with traditional owners and their land and sea management groups, the research aims to strengthen Caring for country projects by:
- Building partnerships, sharing skills, and capacity development especially in governance.
- Assisting key Aboriginal organisations and natural resource management agencies with evidence-based research.
- Using evidence-based research to better inform government policy on cultural and natural resource management on Aboriginal land and sea country and to attract more government and private investments in Caring for country projects.
- Helping Aboriginal land and sea managers make their voice heard in national debates such as climate change, water, sea country, fire management, wildlife use and cultural and natural resource management.
