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 National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) welcomed stakeholders’ views in response to the discussion paper to support development of the IDIP. The NIAA will use the submissions to the discussion paper together with engagement with Indigenous organisations and businesses, state and territory governments, industry bodies and other key stakeholders.
The closing date for written submissions was 1 November 2021, and the NIAA is not accepting further submissions.
