Capturing Indigenous Knowledge in Water Management Processes – Wudjuli Lagoon Case Study, Ngukurr, NT, NAILSMA Knowledge Series 007/12, records the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge with western planning in regard to a larger enterprise development project, and presents key barriers to that integration.

It was one of five projects NAILSMA delivered under the NAWFA Cultural and Social Program under the guidance and advice of the NAILSMA IWPG.

The oucomes of this and the other four NAWFA research outputs informs the North Australian Indigenous Experts Forum on sustainable economic development (refer to the Discussion Paper presented at the First Forum)

These projects further justify development of sustainable livelihoods for Indigenous people in the north; the outcomes of these projects present a wider spectrum of recommendations that need to be addressed when discussing northern development to ensure Indigenous livelihoods are appropriately considered.
