NT Alcohol Action Plan

The NT Alcohol Action Plan is the NT Government’s overarching policy on alcohol.

It provides strategies and goals for the government, individual agencies, community interest groups and industry to tackle the problems associated with excessive alcohol consumption.

This whole-of-community Alcohol Action Plan has been developed to enable partnerships and collaborations, however government will have a lead role, with all agencies expected to commit to and report on activities contained in the plan.
