ACIL Tasman provides analysis and advice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, government agencies and companies on Indigenous development.
ACIL Tasman has detailed understanding of the economic and social circumstances of Indigenous people in Australia, and the policies of governments, combined with on-the-ground experience of Indigenous communities and businesses in both urban and remote locations. We specialise in the development of sustainable economic activity, helping Indigenous communities, families and individuals to build relationships with the private sector, and companies to grow and to employ Indigenous people.
Our work spans regional economic scoping studies to identify sustainable business opportunities, market and feasibility studies for new businesses, detailed business planning, and business and community governance. ACIL Tasman has advised on development of diverse Indigenous businesses including construction and contracting, labour hire, technical education, transport, agriculture, carbon management and tourism.
