Let's Make it Work! Re-thinking the Community Development Employment Program in the NorthernTerritory

Claire Smith, Gary Jackson, Eileen Cummings

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

    Abstract

    The comments presented in this submission are aimed at assisting in the
    development of a CDEP scheme that is congruent with the Northern
    Territory Government’s (2007) Generational Plan of Action, which is
    aimed at closing the gap of Indigenous disadvantage. Our
    recommendations are also aimed at supporting Federal Labor’s
    commitment to close the 17 year life expectancy gap between Indigenous
    and non-Indigenous Australians within the next generation.
    A revitalized CDEP could be a powerful instrument in furthering Federal
    Labor’s focus on Indigenous economic development and its commitment
    to lifting levels of education and training, especially literacy and
    numeracy, and to better health outcomes for Indigenous Australians.
