This newsletter contains two exciting announcements. First, SPA has been given the rights to hold the Fenner Conference on Environment next year, on the subject “Making Australian agriculture sustainable”. Second, Bob Carr will launch the first of SPA-commissioned reports – this one on Infrastructure – on 26 November in Sydney. The newsletter has two opinion articles: one on the need for a population policy by Jenny Stewart; and another on populating northern Australia by Julian Bolliter. There’s news about an article by SPA people in a prestigious journal, and a letter on the Great Transition Initiative. Two book reviews follow on The Urban Fix by Doug Kelbaugh and Time and the Generations by Partha Dasgupta. Then there are branch reports as always. Happy reading!
