Additional resources

Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) refers to Indigenous peoples’ rights to their cultural heritage, traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions. This is enshrined in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Where a research project is being undertaken it is important to consider what ICIP is incorporated, and how ICIP will be protected.

Further resources to assist in your knowledge of best practice engagement with First Nations people and their ICIP, please refer to:

  • UNDRIP Community Guide - assists Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people familiarise themselves with UNDRIP and how the rights can be used in everyday life.
  • UNDRIP Business Guide - provides practical guidance for business to understand, respect, support the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and embed those rights into business practices.

Further resources to assist in your knowledge and implementation of IDSov and IDGov, please refer to:
