Natural Resource Management

NTSV recognises the importance of Country to the health and prosperity of Victorian Traditional Owners.

We are working with groups to create opportunities for greater involvement in natural and cultural resource management.  Our approach has focussed on:

  • securing a range of outcomes in native title agreements that recognise the primacy of rights and interests on traditional lands; and
  • participating in and influencing policy and planning processes of government and statutory authorities.

Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung, Gunaikurnai and Eastern Maar people are being engaged and supported to develop strategic whole-of-Country plans that will articulate the vision, goals and objectives that these groups hold for their land resources and communities.

These plans are based on cultural knowledge and aim to outline the principles that all stakeholders should take into account in the management of traditional lands.
