Abstract

[Extract] This discussion paper is designed to progress Rainforest Aboriginal peoples' (RAP) aspirations for economic development and sustainable livelihoods based on the Wet Tropics region's cultural and natural values (Rainforest Aboriginal Peoples' Alliance, 2012). These values contribute more than $2.7 billion annually to the regional economy through tourism, management and research (Deloitte Access Economics, 2013; Esparon, 2013). Very little of this economic benefit flows to RAP, despite their central role in the expression, ownership and management of these values.
