Analysis of Legislation and Policies Affecting the Development of Indigenous Wildlife-based Enterprises
Projects in this theme
Wildlife-based enterprise development is subject to a range of regulatory constraints. This project seeks support for an APAI to analyse the legal and policy framework governing such enterprises, which are the only realistic potential source of income for many remote Indigenous communities.Northern Territory, Commonwealth and International law and policy will be reviewed broadly and then their implications tested in two case studies, one based on products derived from a protected animal, the estuarine crocodile, the other on an endemic plant, the Kakadu plum. Top-down and bottom-up analysis will be integrated into recommendations to governments on maximising legal consistency and streamlining such enterprise development.
