ALC 15 year Strategic Plan 2. Background to the Strategic Plan 27 and in the periodical withdrawal of on-the-ground health staff from the communities of Milyakburra and Umbakumba. It is recommended that ultimately the community take increasing control of key services in the key decisions being made in the recruitment of experienced outsiders when required, in the formulation of policies of programs being delivered and in the acceleration of local employment levels to assist in the delivery of those services. Later in this document it is proposed that the Anindilyakwa people be supported to incrementally establish a locally driven regional authority funded and accountable to government agencies to deliver appropriate services in education, health and housing and municipal services. This could be governed by representations from all 14 clans (drawn out of the elected members of the ALC) and with relevant service experts involved to deliver an efficient and best-practise range of core essential services to its own people. It is finally recommended that non-local people presenting information to Traditional Owner forums will be required to undertake the ALCs Cross Cultural training module, Consultation and traditional owner decision making. RECOMMENDATIONS: When consulting, all facts and points of view must be presented not just one point of view Trained interpreters must always be provided in critical decision making forums The correct cultural leaders must be present for key decisions being made It is recommended that a Regional Authority governed by representations from all 14 clans (drawn out of the elected members of the ALC) and with relevant service experts involved be created to deliver an efficient and best-practise range of core essential services to its own people ALCs Cross Cultural training module, Consultation and traditional owner decision making should be mandatory for all external stakeholders living and working on the Groote archipelago.
