Parliament House, Canberra

Prepared by Lowitja Institute for the Close the Gap Campaign, this year’s report was released on Ngunnawal Country in Canberra ahead of National Close the Gap Day. The launch provided an opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community leaders, campaign members, and Parliamentarians to reflect on the year that has been, and to refocus on the tasks ahead in the pursuit of our wellbeing, sovereignty, and self-determination. Speakers included representatives of the campaign and organisations profiled in the report.

The Close the Gap Campaign Report 2024 delivers a set of recommendations providing a pathway towards achieving the National Agreement’s goals. Key among these is a call to implement the four Priority Reforms in all jurisdictions, which would include addressing recommendations of the Productivity Commission’s 2024 Closing the Gap review.
