Abstract

The purpose of these Guidelines is to provide a framework for conduct and decision-making for workers involved in the many complex activities associated with Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (IEK) and Natural Resource Management (NRM) in the Northern Territory. These Guidelines have been developed to help ensure that Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) rights are recognised and managed in accordance with key ethical principles. These include respect, free prior and informed consent and basic fairness towards those who hold knowledge.

Keywords: Guidelines, Indigenous ecological knowledge management, Northern Territory, ethical research resources, intellectual property
