#Overview

Engaging with Traditional Owners to prepare a business plan for an Indigenous training program providing wildfire management and mitigation training.

Plan C completed a business plan that addresses commercial and operational strategies for Jigija, including longer term aspirations for the brand, partnerships, and product diversification.

Jigija training programs are a response to growing interest in traditional land management practices from recent bushfires and carbon markets. It provides a unique opportunity for Gangalidda People to share traditional fire knowledge and practice integrated with contemporary fire management strategies and technologies.
