Summary

This report presents the findings of an investigation into the capacity of Indigenous people in north-western Australia to respond to climate risks and develop adaptation pathways, as well as their understanding and perceptions of climate and climate risks. Case studies were conducted in three targeted communities - the Kununurra community in the Keep River district (Western Australia/Northern Territory), the Warmun community (Western Australia) and the Bidyadanga community (Western Australia). This report provides an overview of the role of Indigenous people in developing adaptation strategies and the potential for these communities to build partnerships in these endeavours.
