About

The settlement pattern of the region is sparse. There are population clusters in the Upper Mitchell Catchment and along the Gulf of Carpentaria Coastline, with a dispersed network of small, remote townships in the Gulf plains and the Einasleigh Uplands. About 50% of the region’s population falls within the Mareeba Shire, a further 22% in the Carpentaria, Kowanyama, Etheridge and Croydon Shires accounting for 12% combined, and the remaining 4% in Cook Shire.

Resource Condition Target

The communities of the Northern Gulf Region will improve their capacity for climate change resilience through developing and maintaining a strong and sustainable resource-based economy, growing skills and awareness, and supporting Traditional Owners in their custodial roles as the region’s land and sea managers.

Our Goals

[/cs_text][x_accordion style=”background:white;max-width: 696px;margin: 0 auto;”][x_accordion_item title=”MONITORING FRAMEWORK” open=”false”]

Resilience Rating Scale through the Social Resilience Benchmarking in the Northern Gulf Region, which calibrates the most current and best available data and evidence, providing a current assessment of the social resilience of Gulf Communities against a set of prescribed indicators, with reference to climate change drivers.

[/x_accordion_item][/x_accordion][x_accordion style=”background:white;max-width: 696px;margin: 0 auto;margin-bottom: 20px;”][x_accordion_item title=”RESOURCE CONDITION TARGET” open=”false”]

The communities of the Northern Gulf Region will improve their capacity for climate change resilience through developing and maintaining a strong and sustainable resource-based economy, growing skills and awareness, and supporting Traditional Owners in their custodial roles as the region’s land and sea managers.

[/x_accordion_item][/x_accordion][x_accordion style=”background:white;”][x_accordion_item title=”CUSTODIAL CONNECTIONS” open=”false”]

The aspirations of Indigenous people in returning to their traditional lands as natural resource managers are supported through a range of enterprises and initiatives.

[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”COMMUNITY EDUCATION” open=”false”]

A multi-generational, cross sectoral approach to building NRM capacity and promoting environmental awareness is embraced by the communities of the Northern Gulf Region.
