Building Indigenous community capacity

This project aims to engage with the Indigenous community of North East Victoria to build capacity for Indigenous engagement in natural resource management in three key areas. The areas that have been identified as the highest priorities by local Elders are:

  • building the capacity of Indigenous youth to play leadership roles within their communities

  • build confidence in and use of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) in natural resource management (NRM) within the Indigenous and broader community and;

  • working with a Traditional Owner Group to develop an enterprise model for delivering cultural heritage and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) training and NRM services in the region.
