A Sustainable Population Strategy for Australia


Three panels have produced an Issues Paper with responses being accepted till 1/3/11.

This paper and its three appendices - reports from each of the independent Sustainable Population Advisory Panels (the panel reports) - identifies and explores issues around Australia’s changing population.

The paper is designed to draw out community views about the challenges and opportunities created by changes in our population. This will help to inform the government as it develops a Sustainable Population Strategy (the strategy) in 2011.

The panel reports are an important and integral part of this issues paper. In July 2010, Minister Burke appointed three panels as part of establishing an open national dialogue on a Sustainable Population Strategy. The Advisory Panels were:

Demographic Change and Liveability, chaired by Professor Graeme Hugo,
Productivity and Prosperity, chaired by Ms Heather Ridout, and
Sustainable Development, chaired by the Hon Bob Carr.
