The East Arnhem Land Business Development Approach is a pilot business model for developing and supporting small businesses in remote Indigenous communities. To date, it has been implemented in several communities in the Arnhem Land region of the Northern Territory. The report presents an independent review of the business model, investigating factors for success, constraints and opportunities, and recommendations for development, with reference to the six key themes of appropriateness to setting, effective engagement, practicality, flexibility, direct and broader benefits, and sustainability. The review also looks at how the model has been used in the communities of Galiwin'ku and Gapuwiyak.
