Negotiating Land and Sea

More than 60% of Australian clean energy and resources projects are likely to be developed on land covered by a First Nations Native Title claim or determination.

First Nations landholders and communities are key rights-holders and as governments have recognised, essential to the future sustainability of Australia's clean energy and resources sector.

First Nations communities are also increasingly interested in being partners and equity owners in projects impacting their land.
