Translating Ngarrindjeri Yannarumi assessments into water resource risk assessment project
Recent Ngarrindjeri collaborations with Flinders University have supported the emergence of the Ngarrindjeri Yannarumi assessment process that enables health assessments based on Ngarrindjeri principles and philosophies. Flinders University, the SA Department of Environment and the Ngarrindjeri Regional Authority are partnering in a new Goyder Research Institute project that seeks to translate Ngarrindjeri Yannarumi assessments into water resource risk assessments. This work looks to address a key Basin Plan requirement for jurisdictions to consider Aboriginal cultural values in water resource risk assessment and may inform broader aspects of NRM.
Here more about this work from Grant Rigney (Ngarrindjeri Nation) and Lachy Sutherland (SA DEW) at WPF5!
