Individuals taking action towards the achievement of their goals is a valuable undertaking.  However, many of the problems that people are seeking to address in their management of Country require more than the commitment of a single passionate individual working alone to address them. The physical scale of the issues, the numbers of people affected, the lack of knowledge available of solutions and the impacts of actions, as well as limited resources available requires people and organisations to use approaches that enable coordinated action towards a shared future outcome.

This unit examines the establishment and implementation of strategic planning and project planning as tools for establishing a vision and undertaking actions that work towards achieving them. By examining whole of Country plans, conservation action plans and Caring for Country project plans we will become familiar with the planning processes being used to deliver outcomes on Country that match Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ aspirations.


Problem-solving task 30%, professional plan 30%, project plan and reflective report 40%
