Addressing inequality experience by Aboringal and Torres Straight Islander People
The National Agreement on Closing the Gap has 16 national socio-economic targets across areas that have an impact on life outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Targets are definite and measurable goals. Under each of the targets there are indicators that help to provide an understanding of how to track progress. All Australian businesses especially those in infrastructure and mining industries, and the public sector should seek to align their strategies to these targets, and learn how to effectively measure and monitor the outcomes of their initiatives.
Outcomes are the desired result for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Organisations must engage indigenous peoples. No one should be left out.
Peace and prosperity for people and the planet
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a shared blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs address global challenges, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 Goals which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. Each GOAL consists of specific targets and indicators to assist with effective measurement and monitoring. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth.
Aligning to frameworks
Insight into Impact’s provides organisations with a streamlined, easy to implement process to evaluate, measure, & monitor impact in alignment with existing frameworks. This process produces a dashboard of summarised data presented via graphs and flow diagrams, which enables all cohorts, particularly decision-makers, to assess the value of projects and initiatives. Our process clearly identifies and tracks:
1. the issues and challenges amongst all stakeholders (most importantly the people and communities that are meant to be receiving the social benefit of the investment);
2. how all stakeholders are responding to and managing these challenges;
3. the positive or negative impact of these decisions and responses, which are significantly associated with the overall outcome of the investment and the initiative.
Our process aids councils, organisations, stakeholder groups, and community members by presenting the cause and effect relationships that occur throughout the community development and management process. This information, when shared amongst other stakeholders, initiates dialogue and establishes consensus- based informed decision-making.
