About this publication
This summary booklet on Indigenous Livelihoods is a synopsis of the NAILSMA coordinated projects under the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) Synthesis and Adoption Year and the Northern Australia Water Futures Assessment (NAWFA) Cultural and Social Program (2011-2012).This booklet aims to provide a brief summary and insight into the research projects under those programs, and to clearly state the key recommendations and findings of each project.
The TRaCK and NAWFA projects have built on the firm progress, accomplishment and lessons learned from the overall NAILSMA Water Resource Management Program; including the Indigenous Water Policy Group (IWPG), the Indigenous Community Water facilitator Network (ICWFN), the TRaCK Theme 6 (Sustainable Enterprises) Projects and the various water forums and events facilitated by NAILSMA. These forums have provided a platform for Indigenous people to participate in government land and water resource reform agendas, and to ensure Indigenous aspirations, issues and interests are articulated, encouraged and incorporated into any land and water management policy decisions, planning and water allocation processes in north Australia.
