Negotiating the shared management of Matuwa and Kurrara Kurrara Report Dr Tran Tran, Lindsey Langford Aug, 2015 One of the key aspirations of native title holders is the ability to independently make decisions about and take care of country. This aspiration is often realised through collaborative management arrangements such as joint management. For many native title groups, joint management is often the only substantive land management outcome, yet there has been little research into either its planning process or its drivers.

Building Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander governance: report of a forum to map current and future research and practical resource needs Research outputs Toni Bauman, Dr Diane E.

Evidence exists that suggests there are positive physical health outcomes from living or working on country. However, it has also been argued that Indigenous health cannot improve whilst Indigenous peoples continue to live outside urban areas. These competing views will lead to the adoption of very different strategies for addressing Indigenous health issues.

Connectivity Journal article Jessica Weir Nov, 2008 The need for profound change in our intellectual traditions is a part of the current re-examination of water management in the Murray-Darling Basin. The language of water management has changed to recognise the 'environmental needs' of the river, described as environmental water allocations or environmental flows. But this language continues to position the rivers as just a consumer of water, instead of the source of river water, and is in denial of our dependency on fresh water ecologies for survival.

Further challenges are encountered in the implications of changing law and custom for managing and implementing acknowledged rights arising from claims.

This includes the legal framework for acts directly affecting native title, the types of agreements being reached and how those agreements are structured. It then addresses the taxation treatments that might apply to native title and explores the complexity and ambiguity that arises in the intersection of two of Australia’s most intricate legal regimes.
Case summary: Griffiths v Minister for Lands Planning and Environment [2008] Research outputs Dr Lisa Strelein May, 2008 On 15 May 2008, the High Court of Australia handed down a decision in its first native title case for some years with little fanfare or media coverage. The case concerned a compulsory acquisition of native title by the Northern Territory government in the Timber Creek township. The case required the High Court to consider some fundamental questions of the reach of executive power to divest private citizens of their property. The case therefore has broader reach than the acquisition of native title.

Reforming the claims resolution process: Opportunities and obstacles Issues paper Graeme Neate Aug, 2007 In 2007 numerous legislative and administrative changes were made to key aspects of the Native Title system. Many of those changes affect how Native Titleclaims are resolved.

This paper outlines the key changes, and identifies some of their implications and opportunities for a more effective and efficient claims resolution process.

Making the connection between water and sustaining Indigenous cultural life Chapter Jessica Weir Apr, 2006 Jessica Weir explores an issue unforgivably ignored in water policy and management until recently: Indigenous understanding and use of, and rights to, water. The research goes beyond describing a gap in understanding and moves on to implications and models for moving forward. The recognition of Indigenous water issues in the National Water Initiative is an advance, but the lack of capacity to progress this recognition in water planning and allocation remains a challenge. Jessica points to ways in which this can be done.
