Project Details

Description

The proposed co-mapping project aims to overcome obstacles to agricultural development on Aboriginal land (e.g. engagement, communication and understanding) by developing a process, framework and toolkit. This will enhance stakeholder capacity to remain engaged, plan, implement and make decisions regarding their assets and future commercial development. The co-mapping process and maps will provide critical information required for successful commercial development on Aboriginal land by enabling discussion, planning, intercultural understanding, decision-making and implementation of development activity that fits with aspirations and expectations of all stakeholders. The maps record exclusion zones, flora and fauna, women's and men’s cultural sites, basic topography and hydrology, cadastre, infrastructure, ecological features and water sources. They can be used to identify areas best suited for development, using the local Indigenous languages and English. Once digitised, Western scientific information can be overlaid on the map, clearly delineating potential for development.
