Remote Australia Strategies
Governments are working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to address the disproportionate disadvantage in remote Australia by investing in tailored, local solutions that address community needs.
To make this happen, governments and communities are working together to:
- ensure community needs and priorities are being addressed
- support economic development and employment opportunities
- invest in critical infrastructure
- promote home ownership and use of standard tenancy agreements.
Supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to come up with their own solutions to suit their particular communities is essential to improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in remote Australia.
