Do you want an Effective Indigenous Participation Strategy?

indigenous participation

Formulating and rolling out an Indigenous participation strategy can be a challenging process especially with compliance to the Federal Government “Indigenous Procurement Policy” (IPP) . If strategies  are not developed in a collaborative way with Indigenous Traditional Owners and communities, there is a risk of poor outcomes and potentially substantial risk for projects and Proponents.

For example; over-runs from project interruptions, risk to corporate and brand reputation from damaging media coverage and internal & external conflict during implementation of the  strategy –  not a good outcome for risk adverse Companies.

The skills required to develop a strong and sustainable model that all parties can benefit from, requires deep insight into Culture and the needs of the parties, plus a depth of understanding of the inherent risks.  The diverse culture and experience of the ISCC team can provide a risk management and a non-biased approach in developing an Indigenous Participation Strategy with clarity of expectation and agreed milestones, satisfying Proponent requirements as well as benefiting Traditional Owners, communities and Indigenous businesses.
