Annual Report on Closing the Gap - Western Australian Government

Annual report
The WA Government's first Annual Report on Closing the Gap outlines the key initiatives undertaken and progress made in the last 12 months
Last updated:

The Annual Report draws on data provided by the Productivity Commission, and tracks WA’s progress against the Priority Reforms and socioeconomic targets in the National Agreement on Closing the Gap.

Annual reporting of Closing the Gap outcomes is an important mechanism for all Australian governments to track and report their progress under the National Agreement.

This Report highlights key initiatives that the WA Government has pursued in the last 12 months to work towards closing the gap and demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the lives of Aboriginal people and to embedding the Aboriginal Empowerment Strategy within our operations and ways of working.

The WA Government is doing this by building sustainable and effective partnerships between government, the Aboriginal community-controlled sector, native title holders and other key community-based partners.

The WA Government will release its updated Implementation Plan on Closing the Gap in 2023, which will set out the new actions that will take WA forward in meeting this commitment to closing the gap.
