Abstract

[Extract] Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) make up more than 45 per cent of Australia's National Reserve System, protecting biodiversity, ecosystem services, cultural and community values. They receive a high level of support from the Australian Government. Since 1998 72 IPAs have been established, covering more than 64 million hectares of both land and sea country across Australia.

This project aims to provide an assessment of the research priorities for IPAs in northern Australia. In collaboration with IPA managers, government, non-government and research stakeholders across the north of Australia, the project team will undertake literature reviews, hold workshops and conduct interviews. This information will be used to develop recommendations about the most important IPA research for support through the NESP Northern Australia Environmental Resources Hub.
