Hazards, culture and indigenous communities: Socio-institutional modules for utilisation

Source(s):  Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre (BNHCRC)

The modules are specifically written for bushfire risk and its mitigation through land management activities, with the focus being Indigenous peoples’ burning practices. This reflects where most of the collaborations are occurring in southern Australia, and also our research activities. The modules nonetheless offer support for other natural hazard contexts and other risk mitigation activities. These are simply presented as tools and are not intended to provide advice about the priorities and values of Indigenous peoples. It is particularly important for non-Indigenous people to learn directly from the Indigenous people they are collaborating with. Further, each collaboration will have specific cultural, social, legal, institutional and other norms, structures and processes.

  • Module 1: Governance norms
  • Module 2: Natural hazards management sector terminology
  • Module 3: Language and meaning
  • Module 4: Agreement making
  • Module 5: Resources
