HB: Meaningful Traditional Owner Partnerships

Improve collaboration between all stakeholders, including Traditional Owners, for planning and implementation of natural and cultural resource management projects.

Why it is important?

Facilitating meaningful Traditional Owner involvement in broader NRM requires a commitment to investing time and resources to develop relationships. It is vital to involve Traditional Owners early, during project planning, to ensure cultural considerations are incorporated into projects in a meaningful way.

Examples of Local Action

  • Joint agreement between all Traditional Owner groups in the southern Wet Tropics region, Terrain NRM and NQ Dry Tropics to develop and deliver truly collaborative initiatives for natural and cultural resource management.
