This charter of governance expresses the resolve of Indigenous people in the Murdi Paaki Regional Assembly to manage their own affairs, build sustainable communities and determine their own future. It sets out their governance vision, strategies, goals, practical governing arrangements and structures, and relationships with their community members and partners.
Some things your nation, community or organisation will need to consider and decide when you are starting a governance development plan:
- What is your vision for your future governance and self-determination as a group?
- What issues and areas of your governance do you want to work on first?
- Who needs to be involved in doing it with you?
- What do you know about your governance issues already and what else do you need to find out?
- What are your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and risks in tackling the issues and making the changes?
- What are your ideas and solutions for addressing the governance problems you’ve identified?
- What are your new goals and objectives for these problem areas?
- What resources, additional support or skills do you need?
- How are you going to make it happen—what actions will you take? When will those be done and by whom?
- How will you know you’re making the progress you want?
- How will you know you need to make more changes or refinements?
