Sensitivity Warning

First Peoples

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


Jon Altman and Mike Dillon explore the role of government as risk manager for commercial development and resource management on Indigenous land, and outline the principles that must underpin any intervention program.

They propose a new investment scheme to assist development and natural resource management on the growing Indigenous estate which ensures that commercial and social risks are shared equitably between government, private sector investors and Indigenous-owned corporations in order to avoid problems of adverse selection or moral hazard.
