Framework for the Development of Australia’s Population Strategy

As the federal government prepares to release a series of papers about Australia’s population, the BCA has developed a framework to help Australians weigh up choices for the future.

The Framework for the Development of Australia’s Population Strategy offers a step-by-step path for achieving common ground on the nation’s population strategy.

Australia will benefit from well-planned growth; this framework offers the government and the community a tool to help determine a national position on population.

The framework guides a process that involves:

  • establishing our shared national goals
  • laying out the facts behind population growth
  • assessing different choices and future scenarios
  • agreeing on a strategy most likely to deliver on our goals
  • proper implementation, communication and evaluation.
