o Kooma, and
The need for the Group was identified through a consultation process between QMDC, South West NRM and regional Aboriginal groups. You can read the report here. The role of the RAAG is to:
- Provide QMDC with professional and relevant advice in all matters pertaining to Aboriginal involvement in QMDC's core business
- Assist QMDC to ensure Aboriginal communities in the region are actively participating in natural resource management planning processes that are compatible with Indigenous governance, protocols and decision-making processes
- Disseminate information to Aboriginal people and to relevant Aboriginal groups and organisations about natural resource management issues discussed within the RAAG meetings
- Assist QMDC to foster a deeper understanding between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people, especially on matters related to natural and cultural heritage
- Facilitate the development of good cross cultural awareness between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people (government and non-government) involved in natural resource management in the region.
There are a number of regional Aboriginal groups and committees in the QMDC region. The current structure and advisory role of these groups may change in the future.
For further information regarding membership and contact details of these groups, please contact Tim Knox on email: email@example.com
