Aboriginal Water Values & Management in Northern Australia

This project documented and quantified Aboriginal social and economic values of aquatic resources and identified their flow links in the first study of its kind in Australia. It was managed by CSIRO, as part of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) research program.

The research was conducted over three years (2008-2010) in two tropical river catchments—the Daly River in the Northern Territory and the Fitzroy River in Western Australia — where water planners needed information on Aboriginal people's water requirements. Narrated by traditional owner, Patricia Marrfurra McTaggart, this video focuses on the research conducted in the Daly River catchment. CSIRO -- Australia's national science organisation -- is engaged in strong partnerships with Indigenous communities across northern Australia, addressing a range of natural resource management issues.

This featured project was created and shared with the WIN community by CSIRO and the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge Research Program.
