Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this resource may contain images or names of people who have since passed away.


This guide is written for clean energy companies seeking to develop larger-scale clean energy projects on First Nations land. It explains some of the key concepts and obligations, as well as setting out best practice guidelines for negotiating land access agreements with First Nations land holders.

It provides examples of the contents of both strong and weak land access and benefit sharing agreements. These guidelines have been developed out of experience primarily with the mineral extraction industry.
