Field of Research 300605 Fire Management
Abstract Remote northern indigenous communities are prone to annual flood, cyclonic events, and severe fire danger periods lasting weeks, that frequently result in environmentally destructive wildfires. Although effective responses to such events are typically hindered by inadequate infrastructural resources, of equal concern is the paucity of culturally appropriate ‘two-way’ planning aids which can help inform both non-indigenous and indigenous governance institutions, and build local community resilience. Based on extensive savanna fire management research describing fire impacts on a variety of ecosystem services and values, here we describe the development and testing of mapping tools to assist community-based fire management planning in two remote Arnhem Land communities.
