People on Country, Healthy Landscapes and Indigenous Economic Futures

People on Country aims to transfer skills to land and sea management groups to address two major issues: how their activities are improving Indigenous well-being, and delivering better natural resource management on Aboriginal land and sea country.

Working in partnership with traditional owners and their land and sea management groups, the research aims to strengthen Caring for Country projects by sharing skills,developing local capacity, and assisting with evidence-based research that will better inform government policy and attract more government and private investments in Caring for Country projects.
