Developing effective institutions of government is a key characteristic of Nation Rebuilding, as is aligning culture, supporting leadership development, strategic orientations and assertion of sovereignty.
Carden Consulting specializes in developing institutional and leadership capacity, which requires pro-active planning to develop integrated systems of governing, equipped with nation rebuilding understandings that revitalize First Peoples values, traditional knowledge, and customary practices, based upon current best practices, and includes:
1. Good Governance & Leadership Development (Comprehensive Governance Policies for First Nations and Community Development Corporations);
2. Effective Institutions (HR and Finance Policies); and
3. Supporting the exercising of sovereignty including: developing by-laws, agreements, and planning (e.g. comprehensive community planning, strategic planning, community economic development planning, custom election codes, assertions of economic rights resource management plans).
