The project devised and documented ‘a strategy for the conservation and application of Indigenous Knowledge (IK) across northern Australia.’ The strategy is based on the findings that there had been limited consultation with interested Indigenous groups; undervaluing of IK contributions to land and sea management; a lack of coordinated effort to provide long term and appropriate investment in IK, a rapid loss of language and knowledge across northern Australia; and a lack of appropriate data storage models and adequate IP protection. The project provided strategic solutions to these issues. It documented the priority needs and aspirations of traditional owners for IK; reviewed data-base technology and IP protection; reviewed other Australian and International models and widely disseminated the research findings.
