This publication provides a guide to the issues of climate change and water resources and their impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities as reported in the Native Title Report 2008. The guide highlights the recommendations of the Native Title Report, firstly, the need for the Australian government to provide effective strategies to enable communities to adapt to changing environmental conditions. It further recommends engaging Indigenous peoples in this process by allowing them to share their traditional knowledge, a valuable resource in responding to the challenges of climate change and water resources.
