The Managing Weeds on Native Title Lands workshop, held 26-27 October 2011 in Broome, WA, was part of a larger research project funded by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC), supporting research into the implications of native title for weed management; the weed management priorities of native title holders; and the opportunities and limitations of current weed institutions, policies and programs with respect to native title holders.

The workshop was an opportunity for non-Indigenous stakeholders to gain a better understanding of the cultural landscape for weeds management on native title lands, and the governance and logistical environment of native title holders. It also allowed Indigenous land managers to network with other stakeholders about weed management issues, identifying gaps and challenges and developing strategies for collaborative engagement in the future.

This report into the implications of native title for weed management; the weed management priorities of native title holders; and the opportunities and limitations, for native title holders, of the current weed institutions, policies and programs.
