In northern Australia the need for water planning to identify and address Indigenous interests and values is great. However Indigenous values associated with rivers are poorly understood by decision-makers. This project worked closely with Aboriginal communities to look at the importance of water. It documented the social significance of water and quantify the economic benefits households derived from their use of aquatic resources.
