Large areas of land in rural and remote Australia are now owned and/or managed by Aboriginal communities. There are many opportunities to develop agricultural enterprises that satisfy these communities’ material, cultural and social needs, as well as their land management aspirations. However there are at present significant institutional obstacles to this form of agricultural development.

This project explores some of the opportunities for developing more diverse and resilient agricultural systems by reviewing the prospects, constraints and some practical experiences of developing mixed enterprises on Aboriginal land.
