It is important that First Nation’s knowledge and interests in their traditional lands and waters are recognised and promoted to drive benefits for Aboriginal people and practical improvements in the health of Country.
The government wants to hear how it can better recognise and promote Aboriginal peoples’ land, water, economic and cultural interests.
Strengthening First Nations voices in the NRM system will open space for strong and productive partnerships, for integrating Aboriginal knowledge, and for supporting Aboriginal people to take a leading role in managing natural resources.
Aboriginal people are invited to attend a community forum from 6 August until 20 September. They can also provide their input online here.
Alternatively, local Aboriginal Engagement Officers are also available. Call 8124 4772 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request contact with an officer.
