MR: Ending population growth a critical mitigation tool

Ending world population growth as soon as possible is critical if the world is to limit global warming to 2oC, according to Sustainable Population Australia (SPA).

MR: Latest change to 457 program a retrograde step

The Abbott government’s reopening of a visa loophole in the temporary working visa (457) program is a retrograde step, according to Sustainable Population Australia (SPA).

The Gillard government in 2013 had tightened the program to stop rorting by employers in the mining, construction and IT industries who knowingly hired hundreds more foreign workers than they had applied for.

MR: No advancement for women without access to family planning

There will be no positive change for women unless they have control over their own fertility, according to Sustainable Population Australia (SPA). This requires ready access to contraception within the context of the full range of reproductive health and rights.

Inspiring Change is the 2014 theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) and encourages advocacy for women's advancement everywhere in every way.

MR: Quality of education to fall unless population also stabilised

Should Treasurer Joe Hockey stop growth in education spending then he must also stop growth in population if standards are not to fall, according to Sustainable Population Australia (SPA).

Treasurer Joe Hockey unveiled the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) in Canberra yesterday, warning that social programs, including education, health and welfare, would not see any growth in funding.
