Closing the Gap: Retrospective review

Closing the Gap: Retrospective review

10 October 2019

This report reviews the design and implementation of the 2008-2018 Closing the Gap initiative.

This report has been published by the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA).

This report adds to evaluations of the Closing the Gap initiative by investigating the appropriateness of its design and implementation, rather than outcomes.

The evaluation found that, though many of the components of the Closing the Gap framework did make a positive contribution, the framework was not well implemented and did not capture cultural respect and collaboration with Indigenous Australians. However, though there has been a great deal of lost opportunity, there is also potential to shift the way government and Indigenous Australian communities work together.

Access the report via the NIAA website.
