Leadership Community development Community participation Australia

New approaches to strengthen and grow regional and remote communities are increasingly being explored. The success and sustainability of these approaches can be influenced by a community’s leadership capacity.

SVA describes successful community leadership development programs through which governments, social purpose organisations and communities can help build this leadership capacity.

The article is based on SVA's evaluations of leadership development programs in Victoria (supported by Regional Development Victoria) and in the Western Desert in Western Australia (run by Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa).
