Abstract
Cultural and Natural Resource Management (CNRM) is a growing cross-sectoral discipline which integrates human cultural knowledge, values and relationships with the natural environment in the management of natural resources. It incorporates and integrates cultural studies, heritage studies, environmental science, planning, geography and ecology. It is closely aligned with academic disciplines of geography, human ecology, sustainable development and environmental science. It has grown as a field of natural resource management which incorporates Indigenous Knowledge of country specifically where Indigenous peoples, knowledge and values are integrated with and enhance Western scientific knowledge. Concurrent with this growth in activity is an increase in demand for qualifications which address unique CNRM cross-discipline characteristics.
