Effective management of native title and cultural heritage issues is critical to the timely delivery of infrastructure and mining projects.

Increasingly, project managers, environmental officers and in-house counsel are required to understand the legal basis of native title and cultural heritage issues. Without this knowledge, an organisation’s ability to manage this complex and difficult area of project delivery may be reduced.

This workshop will assist you to develop a strong understanding of the legislative basis of this specialised area.

Who should attend?

  • Public and private sector officers with environmental, cultural heritage or native title responsibilities
  • Mining and infrastructure development proponents
  • Project managers and personnel who are required to understand the fundamentals of native title and cultural heritage issues.

What we’ll cover

Native title

  • What is native title and how do we deal with it?
  • Examination of the workings of the Native Title Act, with particular focus on native title clearance for development activities, including:
    • Developments on reserved lands and leases
    • Development of facilities for services to the public
    • Compulsory acquisition of native title
    • The right to negotiate.

Cultural heritage

  • Examination of Queensland’s Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003, in the context of development approvals:
  • Managing cultural heritage risks
  • The duty of care
  • Cultural heritage management plans and other agreements
  • Identifying Aboriginal parties.

What you’ll learn

  • Develop a sound understanding of native title and cultural heritage legislative requirements
  • Understand how native title and cultural issues fit into overall project management
  • Be able to identify what processes and timelines apply to native title and cultural heritage clearances
  • Know how to assess your projects against the duty of care requirements of the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act 2003
  • Identify which Aboriginal parties they will be required to engage with to achieve clearances
  • Understand the fundamentals of native title and cultural heritage agreement-making.
