Abstract: This Discussion Paper was developed in response to the direction from the Ministerial Council meeting 33 – 9th May: - Council requested further consideration by the Commission of issues raised by traditional owners, including Indigenous interests in water, and indicated its intention to review the implications at its November 2003 meeting. The Discussion Paper draws on the outcomes of the Indigenous peoples’ consultations with the Murray Darling Basin Commission (MDBC) as part of the Living Murray Initiative. This Paper seeks to place the views and aspiration expressed in those documents within a broader Indigenous rights context. While this paper often focuses on the Murray River as an engagement with the Living Murray Initiative many of the issues raised are relevant to both the Murray and Darling Rivers and more broadly.
