The Healthy country, healthy people project was undertaken at the behest of the traditional owners in central Arnhem Land in collaboration with a trans-disciplinary team of medical, ecological and social researchers.The research was designed to test the assertion that investment in Indigenous Cultural and Natural Resource Management (ICNRM) benefits both people and environment. This fact sheet covers key findings, the background, and recommendations.
This project provides evidence that active participation in traditional cultural activities has positive impacts on both Indigenous people and their environment; therefore both health promotion and environmental health practitioners could use this factsheet as an aid to present reports or make recommendations.
