In 2012 commenced a planning process to guide the organisation forwardThe outcome of our planning helped us to understand that; you cant have healthy country, if the people arent healthy and our culture isnt kept strong, and this can be in any order.In our plan; We made a clear vision and mission statements (our dreams)Our Dream is to bring our country back to life like it was before by being on country to protect our sites and share our proud culture with the rest of the world. We will work to manage our country and nurture the biodiversity so that our country will keep its clean running rivers and we will see healthy populations of mantapa (plains turkey) and numpi (emu) roaming the open grassy flats. Agreed on Targets and their current healthUnderstood the threats to our targets

Now we are working towards implementing our plansKalan wants to change the colours on our tables

Research Question and ApproachResearch QuestionHow applicable and adaptable are the CFOC and WOC ME frameworks to local communitys broader indigenous sustainable livelihood plans and work-programs. When these tools are adapted by communities in this way how well do they support; strategic and adaptive responses to environment changes and environmental policy conditions; identification of potential sustainable livelihoods options; appropriate governance and decision making and institutional contexts within which it occurs; and improvements to local livelihoods, socio-economic conditions and sustainability at a local scale in Cape York? Approach/MethodTwo traditional owner groups in central Cape York in partnership with CSIRO, Anthropos Consulting and Balkanu will; adapt the ME frameworks for CFOC and WOC to their broader sustainable livelihoods plans and work programs, trial these, and over two years review outcomes in relation to impact on sustainable livelihood outcomes at the local scale whilst maintain reporting commitments to external stakeholders i.e. funders. From this work recommendations will be developed for similar applications for indigenous communities elsewhere.
