Webinar – Best Practice Partnership Approaches on Aboriginal Land

23 June@12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Developing East Arnhem Limited (DEAL) is a non-profit economic development organisation based in Nhulunbuy, Northern Territory. DEAL works across the East Arnhem region to support the interests of traditional owners and to facilitate private and public sector investment. As the region transitions away from a mining-based economy, DEAL is focused on working in partnership to develop new industries to grow employment, particularly for Yolŋu.

This webinar will cover:

  • the importance of partnerships to leverage regional economic development opportunities, particularly in remote Australia.
  • how economic development organisations can work with traditional owners to assist economic development on Aboriginal Land.

Participants will learn:

  • the initiatives and actions demonstrating innovative partnerships with Indigenous landowners, entrepreneurs and businesses that are responsive to their needs
  • collaboration between regional organisations to achieve positive outcomes
  • strategic planning to fill gaps and shortfalls in regional economic development
