Currently being undertaken by the consulting engineers Arup, this independent evaluation will assess the efficiency and effectiveness to date of the Aboriginal Communities and Water Sewerage Program (ACWSP). In consultation with the program’s beneficiaries, the review will also develop a Program Logic Model to measure its long-term success.
In 2011, the NSW Government and Aboriginal communities started a conversation that resulted in the OCHRE initiatives. That important conversation is continuing to work out what the key issues are and to solve them, so that each Local Decision Making process, Industry Based Agreement, Language and Culture Nest and Opportunity Hub develops with local Aboriginal communities’ views in mind.
The NSW Government will grow OCHRE based on these conversations. Further information about these conversations can be found here.
