Supporting commercial forestry opportunities in East Arnhem Aboriginal communities


A 3-year research and development project investigating the potential for commercial Indigenous forestry in northern Australia is underway.

The project is focused on the Northern Territory’s East Arnhem Land, and is due to be completed by June 2023.

The Indigenous Commercial Forestry Opportunities project is funded by Forest and Wood Products Australia, as well as Developing East Arnhem Limited, the University of the Sunshine Coast, the National Indigenous Australians Agency, Gumatj Corporation, the Northern Land Council, and the Northern Territory Government’s Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade.

Find out more about the project in the NT Rural Review.
