Objectives DTP’s first program with Australian Indigenous community leaders/advocates was in 1990. In 2004, DTP, in partnership with Oxfam Australia, reengaged more strategically in human rights advocacy capacity building in Australia. This focussed initially on support for DTP’s Asia-Pacific Regional Indigenous Peoples' programs held in the Northern Territory.
