Abstract: The North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance Ltd (NAILSMA) is working with the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods (RIEL) and the Aboriginal Research Practitioners Network (ARPNet) at Charles Darwin University (CDU), together with community members from Ngukurr and Gunbalanya communities in Arnhem Land, on a research project titled ‘Building Community Resilience in Northern Australia’. The project is funded by the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre. The aim of the project is to use action research to understand, identify and trial opportunities for promoting resilience in remote north Australian Indigenous communities. There are two key component projects: 1. Scoping remote north Australian community resilience; and 2. Developing opportunities for building more resilient remote communities in northern Australia including effective governance models. The aim of this literature review is to provide background information for the scoping study and governance modelling project, and to identify gaps in the literature which these projects may seek to address.
