INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY FOR LEADERSHIP AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

GOVERNANCE

Indigenous political systems are complex structures of governance. They are designed to fit with the realities of a Nations territory and to provide opportunities to make, interpret and enforce ‘laws’ in a manner that is consensual and inclusive. In constructing political systems, each Nation has a unique and complex system of governance.

 Indigenous political systems are complex structures of governance. They are designed to fit with the realities of a Nations territory and to provide opportunities to make, interpret and enforce ‘laws’ in a manner that is consensual and inclusive. In constructing political systems, each Nation has a unique and complex system of governance. ICLD provides the necessary skills and training to participants to fully understand the Roles and Responsibilities of being an elected official sitting on Chief & Council to ensure the effective administration of the Nation.

  • Defining Roles and Responsibilities of the elected officials

  • Developing a Team Charter that clarifies the teams direction while establishing boundaries.

Governance:

The single greatest contributing factor to a community's socio-economic progress and its overall well-being.

 

 

We will achieve this by:
  • Taking greater control over the decisions that affect the lives of the community

  • Carrying out effective relationships with other governments at all levels to ensure all opportunities are available

  • Taking advantage: of economic development opportunities

  • improve programs and services through strong financial accountability

  • Enhancing social and economic well-being through effective planning and inclusive participation
