Event Type: 

Indigenous Rangers Conference Participants

The Forum was held in conjunction with the Apudthama Cape York Indigenous Rangers Conference and hosted jointly by the Apudthama Land Trust, Balkanu Cape York Development Corporation and NAILSMA. It was also supported by the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council.

The aims of the Forum were to:

  • seek input from Traditional Owners into water policy issues, indigenous rights to water, water quality, water allocation and associated land and sea management interests involving research and livelihoods; and
  • give Traditional Owners in the region an opportunity to share their knowledge and identify future directions relating to National Water Reform issues in northern Australia, in particular Cape York.

The Water Forum  was primarily funded through NAILSMA’s Indigenous Community Water Facilitators Network.
