Office of the Northern Territory Coordinator-General for Remote Services (2012)

Office of the Northern Territory Coordinator-General for Remote Services report: June 2011 to August 2012.

Darwin: Office of the Northern Territory Coordinator-General for Remote Services

This is the first of two annual reports that examine the objectives, strategies and funding arrangements of agreements that form the basis of the partnership between the Commonwealth and Northern Territory (NT) governments aimed at closing the gap in living conditions and social outcomes for Aboriginal Territorians.

The geographies assessed in the report include; Territory growth towns, Community living areas, town camps, homelands, communities and outstations.

The report focuses on four major themes arising from the approach taken by governments in relation to Aboriginal people since the NT emergency response (NTER) commenced in 2007 and reflected in the Stronger futures arrangements proposed for the next ten years. These are:

  • transparency and accountability
  • the balance between the crisis and developmental aspects of initiatives under both the NTER and Stronger futures
  • the marginalisation of Aboriginal people in decision making and resource allocation
  • the lack of long-term planning and capacity development within Aboriginal towns, particularly the transfer of service delivery from Aboriginal organisations to the non-Indigenous, non-profit sector.
The report makes twelve recommendations in the following areas:population and mobility; one-stop shop business centres; accountability and transparency; prioritisation of investments; community safety; early childhood; education; youth services review; labour force participation; workforce development (housing); housing; and health (morgues).
