Abstract This book assesses the case for investing in Indigenous natural resource management (NRM) in tropical Australia. Indigenous people provide a number of public goods in relation to environmental management for which they are not remunerated. Their presence on country should be viewed as a national asset. The health of Australia's Indigenous people remains unacceptable. Individual and collective engagement with ancestrally significant land and sea improves health outcomes, while also supporting individual autonomy and social cohesion through cultural practices. This book brings together a broad suite of authors with an understanding of Indigenous NRM and the economics thereof. Indigenous NRM emerges as a 'keystone policy area' that could allow integration of many policy fields commonly considered in isolation. The editors of this book all have wide experience in the fields covered by this book. Professor Marty Luckert from the University of Alberta has been offering insights into the economics of environmental management around the world for decades, Professor Bruce Campbell from Charles Darwin University (CDU) has an international reputation for his work on livelihoods among the rural poor, Julian Gorman (CDU) has played a key role in fostering wildlife-based industries among Indigenous people in the monsoonal tropics of the Northern Territory and Professor Stephen Garnett (CDU) has broad experience in management of tropical environments, particularly northern Australia.
