About The IBA Agreement

The IBA Agreement is an initiative of the NSW Mining industry and NSW Government to work together with Aboriginal people to create sustainable development and employment opportunities for Aboriginal people across the state.

The NSW Government and the NSW Minerals Council acknowledges and honours Aboriginal people as the first people and nations of NSW, and recognises that they have made and continue to make a unique and lasting contribution to the identity of NSW.
This Agreement acknowledges the importance of working together to help close the employment gap and kick start Aboriginal owned businesses and the commitment the NSW Minerals Council has to securing employment, career and business development outcomes for Aboriginal people in NSW.
The current Agreement builds on the first IBA Agreement (2013-2015) and applies the lessons learnt implementing the first Action Plan, particularly with respect to improved communication and involvement of regional stakeholders.
