The Alinytjara Wilurara (AW) Landscape Board together with their staff is committed to working in partnership with communities and other key stakeholders to deliver positive land management outcomes in the region. The strategic position statement of the board reflects this – ‘working with communities to care for the cultural and physical landscape in the face of a changing climate’.

Memorandum of understandings

The board is working with communities, governing councils and other key stakeholders to develop memorandum of understandings (MOUs) that will capture the spirit of how partnerships will work in the AW region. These will be released in 2013-2014.


The AW Landscape Board and staff support the Department of Environment and Water through co-management arrangements for public land and reserves, where appropriate. One of the primary objectives of co-management is to reconnect Traditional Owners to country. Mamungari Conservation Park, in the Great Victoria Desert, is currently managed by Mamungari Co-Management Board, which includes Maralinga Tjarutja, Pila Nguru and Department of Environment and Water representatives.
