Ngarangun, our Indigenous Research Strategy (PDF, 1.3MB), underpins our Indigenous research as we work with Indigenous communities in Australia and around the world to identify the greatest challenges they face into the future.
Indigenous populations are growing rapidly and continue, on all indicators, to face complex challenges into the future.
It is only with strategic research of the highest quality that communities will be able to interrogate these challenges, influence the decision makers and funders and create for themselves the futures to which all aspire. View our Indigenous Research Strategy 2020 update (pdf, 1.5Mb).
