Land tenure issues are often considered as one of the significant barriers to encouraging development and investment in northern Australia. While tenure plays an important part in development, it is a contributing rather than the driving factor leading to uncertainty for investors. Indeed, resolving land tenure issues often depends on the resolution of higher level policy and land use conflicts. This contribution, based substantively on the work of JCU and CSIRO (2013), synthesises some of the most critical issues that have previously been identified by the Northern Australian Ministerial Forum with respect to tenure and northern development issues.
