This report highlights the need for an Indigenous representative body as being fundamental to positive change to address Indigenous disadvantage. The report acknowledges the lack of transparency for engaging with Indigenous peoples to influence the shaping of policy directions and accountability of governments. It recognises that unless there is proper engagement of Indigenous peoples then governments will struggle to make any progress. A variety of issues are identified that will require consideration.
