The Indigenous Digital Inclusion Plan (IDIP) is being developed by the National Indigenous Australians Agency, with support from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.
This work is part of the Australian Government’s response to the recommendations of the 2018 Regional Telecommunications Review.
The IDIP will address key issues to improve Indigenous digital inclusion in the three areas of:
- Digital ability
The IDIP is being developed in consultation with Indigenous organisations and communities, businesses and government agencies during 2021. Consultation will include a series of virtual round tables with key stakeholders and follow up discussions and an opportunity for stakeholders to provide a submission on the key issues to the IDIP.
The discussion paper provides an overview of issues relating to digital inclusion for Indigenous Australians, including identification of barriers to digital inclusion and the role of existing programs and services. The discussion paper provides a basis for stakeholder consultations supporting development of the IDIP.
Organisations and individuals are invited to provide a submission on the discussion paper. Submissions can be made using the online form or by uploading a free-text submission.
Submissions on the discussion paper close 1 November 2021.
