Yawuru Cultural Management Plan

UDLA was commissioned by the Yawuru people of the Broome area to assist in the creation of a long-term management plan of Yawuru country. The Yawuru Cultural Management Plan (YCMP) has been produced under the guidance and leadership of multiple collaborators to produce a document to guide the joint management of the Yawuru Conservation Estates and achieve best practice outcomes.

The Plan explains how the Yawuru Registered Native Title Holders Body Corporate (RNTHBC) will be involved in managing country through their Ranger Program, working in partnership with the Department of Environment and Conservation, Shire of Broome, government agencies and researchers to make sure that country is cared for in the best possible way. It will respectfully drive conservation plans, land management decisions and design activities to ensure the management of country brings the greatest possible benefits to Yawuru people.

OUTCOMES:
    • The consultation approach works towards a process of facilitating, engaging and empowering culturally known understandings into a form that could be understood in a cross-cultural and inter-generational way
    • The YCMP records and value maps something about culture, country, community and liyan (wellbeing) in a unique and contemporary manner
AWARDS:
    • 2014 International Federation of Landscape Architecture, Asia-Pacific Region (IFLA APR) President’s Award
    • 2012 AILA Australian Medal for Landscape Architecture
    • 2012 AILA WA Medal for Landscape Architecture
