Alinytjara Wilurara NRM Board

AW NRM Region Map

AW NRM Region Map

The AW NRM Board is the only regional NRM Board in Australia in which all voting members are Aboriginal. Board members have an interest in NRM, as well as an affiliation with the land and its people. The unique nature of the Region requires a balance between ‘traditional’ authority and ‘government’ authority. To be successful, the Board needs to partner with elders, traditional owners and land holding authorities to ensure modern NRM practices are married with traditional ‘care of country’-all the while ensuring good governance in relation to the Board and its programs. The Board’s priority objectives, in turn, need to be achievable, accountable, and practical for the Region.
