As the formally recognised representative body of the Gunaikurnai people, Gunaikurnai Land and Waters Aboriginal Corporation (GLaWAC) plays an active role in ensuring the protection, preservation, rehabilitation and sustainable use of our Country. We have formal and informal protocols and agreements with land management agencies on when and how we should be consulted and involved. This includes:
- land use planning and management strategies and policies,
- development proposals,
- proposed use of land and natural resources,
- research, collection and use of Indigenous Ecological Knowledge,
- related training, employment and business opportunities.
The Whole of Country plan articulates our vision and priorities for the management of Country. This plan was completed in 2015 after many hours consulting with the Gunaikurnai community.
