The Pathways Project was one of 12 research projects of the Cooperative Research Centre for Remote Economic Participation (CRC-REP), which is managed by Ninti One Limited. The project began in 2012 and was completed in June 2016.
The research project was guided by the following questions:
- How do Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people who reside in (very) remote communities navigate their way into meaningful livelihoods?
- What kinds of work might help to support sustainable livelihood outcomes?
- What kinds of learning could support meaningful livelihood agendas, aspirations and pathways?
This working paper summarises a two-day workshop held at Katherine, Northern Territory, 23–24 February 2016, which brought together 28 key stakeholders committed to contributing to a thriving economic ecosystem in the Roper-Gulf Region with direct benefit for local Aboriginal peoples. The workshop aimed to map out a supportive environment for enterprising pathways and identify key practical steps for its growth.
