Guidelines that have been driven by Indigenous people to strengthen knowledge sharing about land and sea management are now available to download.

The Our Knowledge Our Way in caring for Country Best Practice Guidelines, has been developed as a resource for Indigenous land managers to learn from others on options for bringing their knowledge into environmental and economic development. It is also an invaluable resource for partners of Indigenous land managers.

The development of the guidelines was supported by the Northern Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance (NAILSMA) and CSIRO, and funded by the Northern Australia Hub of the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Program (NESP). They are based on 23 case studies that illustrate the critical principle that Indigenous people must decide: What is best practice when working with their knowledge?
