Using innovative fieldwork and community-based methods, this project also aims to examine customary laws regulating to Indigenous knowledge and biocultural diversity. This would be used to develop and test community protocols and related tools. It is anticipated the project will assist custodians and other users of indigenous knowledge to meet their obligations under the 2014 Nagoya Protocol to the Convention on Biodiversity, thus protecting and promoting Indigenous knowledge in Australia and the Pacific into the future.
