Report Calls for Radical Change to Governance of Remote Australia
Fixing the hole in Australia’s Heartland is a major new independent report which recommends sweeping changes to the way residents and communities in remote areas are consulted, treated and serviced by governments. The result of more than three years’ consultation and research by the remoteFOCUS Group facilitated by Desert Knowledge Australia, the report was launched at Parliament House, Canberra on 10 September.
“Is the current governance of remote Australia good, or even adequate? We think not. Is it fair and just? We think not,” says The Hon Fred Chaney, AO, a former Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister, Chair of Desert Knowledge Australia and CPD Patron.
