Repairing Memory & Place is one of 67 new research projects selected to keep Australia at the forefront of emerging technologies and benefit the wider community. The project intends to integrate Indigenous ways of knowing with urban water management.
With $240,000 in funding, the project should provide significant benefits by enabling the repair of ecological and cultural memory of place and enabling government agencies to apply Indigenous practices to everyday management of urban water towards a more sustainable water future.
