Join us in tackling Australia’s toughest policy challenges for a fair, sustainable, inclusive future.

As CPD has grown over the years, so has the scale of our impact on the Australian policy landscape, where we’ve played a pivotal role in shaping policy and systems change that reflects the nation’s long-term interests.

Our team not only designs new policies but also reevaluates how these policies are executed. We believe that modifying the systems where these policies function can secure enduring change. We embrace the inclusion of non-traditional stakeholders, and work to connect decision-makers, experts and those with lived experience in order to devise the most effective methods of implementation.

We have achieved a lot in the last year alone, but we remain focused on the long-term.

Imagine a society that fosters equal opportunity and justice, an economy powered by clean, innovative, and productive solutions, a government that is effective and proactive, and a nation renowned for its leadership and cooperation. This is the future we envision at CPD, and with your support, we can make it a reality.

The independent, rigorous work we do to create deep, lasting systems change in our country and our region relies on your support.

As a non-profit organisation with low overheads, the resources we receive are put straight to work on researching great ideas and injecting them into the public debates that will shape the future of our society, environment and economy.

CPD is a registered charity with the ACNC and an Approved Research Institute. Donations to CPD over $2 are tax deductible.

Our achievements have been possible thanks to the generosity and unwavering support from our valued donors who share our vision for a more just, sustainable, and prosperous future.

Your generous donations, whether from philanthropic foundations, individuals, or families, are the lifeblood that enables us to continue our mission of addressing the most pressing policy challenges Australia and the region face.

By making a tax-deductible donation to CPD, you are not only investing in a brighter future for Australia and the region, but also making a tangible impact on the policy environment and, ultimately, on the lives of millions of Australians. Together, we can create the future we all deserve.
