Aboriginal Governance & Management Program (AGMP)
Strong and effective Aboriginal organisations are essential to reduce Aboriginal disadvantage.
- They are vital to deliver accessible, responsive services in Aboriginal communities, particularly remote communities.
- They are an important source of employment and training for Aboriginal people.
- They promote community leadership and provide positive role models.
- They bind the social fabric of remote Aboriginal communities, both through the practical contribution they make in providing services and symbolically through the pride they instill.
Development experts have long recognised the importance of strong Aboriginal organisations in tackling Aboriginal disadvantage and disempowerment. Aboriginal people themselves understand this from decades of direct experience.
In 2013, APO NT initiated the NT Aboriginal Governance and Management Program (AGMP) to build the strength and effectiveness of NT Aboriginal organisations and support good governance in Aboriginal communities. APO NT acknowledges and welcomes the Commonwealth Government funding that has made the initial three years of the program possible.
