About NAILSMA

NAILSMA has managed collaborative research into fire and carbon management since 2008. Early Action Research across north Australia has supported Indigenous land managers to establish, own and operate fire and green-house gas (GHG) emissions abatement projects. As other Indigenous practitioners, service providers and aggregator businesses have grown up in this space, NAILSMA has remained a key and significant player in the development and support of the now burgeoning carbon and ecosystem services sector in the north.

Our role has adapted to anticipate, support and work directly to meet broad ranging needs in this sector; from communications products through to enterprise development and governance assistance.

NAILSMA has developed several videos to support a better understanding of the Indigenous carbon industry, please view here.

NAILSMA remains focussed on and promotes Indigenous Knowledge systems as integral to doing Business on Country, including fire and carbon management and other Payment for Environmental Services (PES) enterprises.
