This report was prepared for the North Australian Indigenous Land & Sea Management Alliance's (NAILSMA) Indigenous Water Policy Group (IWPG), and is hosted on the NAILASMA website. The NAILSMA IWPG project aims to articulate the least known aspects of water policy particularly relevant to north Australia’s Indigenous population, for example, issues relating to property rights, use and management. This report describes the current governance of water in the Maningrida region in central Arnhem Land from three perspectives; a historical analysis of the political economy of water, a sectoral analysis of the regional hybrid economy, and a spatial analysis that has differentiated Maningrida township from the hinterland.
