The research and development priorities for the region included: social, cultural and political data/understanding; participation - research into best practice for participatory planning; institutions - reviewing and evaluating alternative institutional mechanisms; capacity - lack of human and financial capacity; key outcomes were: recordings of Aboriginal knowledge and identification of land use issues in Kija and Jaru country; databases developed with Kija and Jaru people in the Upper Ord; capacity building in the lower Ord catchment area in Kija, Miriwoong Gajirrawoong and Balanggarra country - networks established with educational institutions, government natural resource management agencies and community groups; Aboriginal Liaison officer position established for weed management; 'Ribbons of Blue" pilot project developed; working group established in Kununurra on pesticides and water quality; this is the first time that Aboriginal people have been involved in collaboration to this degree.
