This report evaluates a strategic plan aimed at improving food security on Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands.
The Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands food security strategic plan 2011 – 2016 (the Strategy) was launched in 2010 by the former South Australian Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Reconciliation.
The APY Lands food security strategic plan 2011 – 2016: year 1 evaluation report states that first year activities focused on setting up relationships between the stakeholder groups and engagement of stakeholders to develop a strong foundation for the six-year strategy. The three stakeholder groups are: the Anangu people; the APY Lands stakeholders; and the APY Executive Action Team (APY EAT). The APY EAT is comprised of representatives from several state government agencies, the Commonwealth Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and APY executives.
Consultations were held with each of the stakeholder groups to enable: identification of seven priority areas for action; and development of work plans to guide implementation of the Strategy. Strengths of, and challenges to the Strategy were identified and proposed year two activities decided upon.
