National Indigenous Infrastructure Guide (NIIG) - information sessions



The Centre for Appropriate Technology (CAT) is running information sessions on the NIIG in Western Australia. The guide covers: water, stormwater, wastewater, waste, energy, telecommunications, and transport.

The information sessions are meant to create awareness about NIIG, its background and development, structure and use, and to familiarise potential users on how to use the guide. They are also forums for discussion and to collect feedback both from users and potential users.

Presentations are aimed at technical people with limited community engagement skills and community workers with restricted technical knowledge. Sessions provide a general introduction to NIIG, an overview of its purpose and rationale. Typically, one or two samples from its general context section or infrastructure types from its seven infrastructure component chapters (water, stormwater, wastewater, waste, energy, telecommunications, transport) of the guide are taken up in greater detail to make its structure and logic more explicit. A brief description of its future and potential chapters is discussed and the session concludes with a question and answer session. It is also a good opportunity to network with people who are involved in infrastructure planning, delivery and maintenance in Indigenous communities.
