Capacity Building

for MLDRIN's Member Nations

To achieve their water rights, MLDRIN supports its Member Nations in building-up capacity and skills 

The Murray Lower Darling Rivers Indigenous Nations (MLDRIN) support our Member Nations to realise their water rights by providing opportunities to build skills and capacity.

Advising and informing Member Nations on the technicalities of Water Management decision-making processes.

Water Management is a technical business, so First Nations can benefit from advice and information about how government decisions are affecting their Country.

MLDRIN provides updates about the implementation of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, the development of Water Resource Plans by the Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) and other water planning processes. This means that Aboriginal Nations are equipped to maximise outcomes for community and Country through these processes. 

Encouraging individuals and Indigenous Nations to build-up waterway management expertise and experience

MLDRIN also supports Delegates, Nations and individuals to build their expertise in using tools and resources such as the Aboriginal Waterways Assessment (AWAs) methodology and GIS (Geographic Information System) Mapping.

MLDRIN provides training to Nations to collate and prepare data from AWAs projects. This means Member Nations can undertake their own waterway assessments, manage the data and determine their own priorities. 

MLDRIN also helps Delegates to undertake advocacy training and build their knowledge of waterway management.
