How can Australian agriculture and land management adapt to climate change in a way that promotes Indigenous leadership and sustainable development?

Australia is one of the countries most vulnerable to the effects of climate change such as reduced rainfall and increased bushfires. It is now at a crossroads with its agriculture and land management regimes, and needs to strategically adapt its policy approach to incorporate global sustainable development principles. Key ways forward will be much greater engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; a focus on regenerative and sustainable agriculture and land management; and greater prioritisation of social equity in national resource management.
