Summary
Paper outlines the key government targets to be attained in conjunction with the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), corporate and community sectors, and in partnership with Indigenous Australians, to improving health and life expectancy, economic development, education, employment and housing; these targets include: closing the life expectancy gap within a generation, halving the gap in mortality rates for Indigenous children under five within a decade, ensuring access to early childhood education for all Indigenous four year olds in remote communities within five years, halving the gap in reading, writing and numeracy achievements for children within a decade, halving the gap for Indigenous students in year 12 attainment or equivalent attainment rates by 2020, and halving the gap in employment outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a decade; many corporate and community sectors, including schools, are preparing Reconciliation Action Plans (RAP) as part of their contribution to closing the gap on Indigenous disadvantage
