The Indigenous Desert Alliance (IDA) is an Indigenous controlled, member based organisation that plays a vital role in 'Keeping the Desert Connected' and building resilience for desert ranger programs.
With offices in Perth WA and Alice Springs NT, we are focused on working with our members and partners to ensure that Indigenous people are enabled to collaboratively manage Australia’s desert country and through this, to realise their social, cultural, environmental and economic aspirations.
We do this through:
- facilitating opportunities for Indigenous land managers across the desert to come together to speak with one voice for desert country
- strengthening connections between desert groups through maintaining a vibrant information sharing and ranger team exchange network
- providing capacity strengthening support for rangers and their organisations to enhance the outcomes for the Indigenous land management sector in the desert
- managing critical landscape scale collaborative projects with our members across the desert
