Attorney-General, Robert McClelland, today announced the Government will invest $1.4 million to attract more anthropologists into Native Title work. “Anthropologists are vital to the successful operation of the native title system as claimants often rely on experienced anthropologists to provide expert evidence to establish their connection to the land and support their application,” Mr McClelland said. The Native Title Anthropologists Grants Program will provide funding over three years for key projects aimed at attracting and retaining anthropologists conducting native title work. The program will target three priority areas of need, including: * training and development to smooth the transition from study to native title field work; * professional development and support for anthropologists working in the sector; and * stronger links between academic and applied anthropological work. “The current shortage of experienced anthropologists is a critical issue as it has the potential to delay the resolution of native title claims and impact on the quality of outcomes for all parties.” This funding demonstrates the Government’s commitment to a more flexible, less legalistic native title approach that delivers practical outcomes, including opportunities for indigenous Australians and certainty for landholders and industry. The program guidelines and application information are available at www.ag.gov.au. Applications close on 21 June. Media Contact: Adam Siddique 0407 473 630
