Foundation elements

The following elements are covered in the content of each foundation area:

Foundation areas

Nine foundations create the framework for The Queensland Plan. It is important to note the connections and interdependence of the foundation areas. Success in one area will directly affect another and require ongoing balance and prioritisation over the next three decades.

Goals and success factors

All foundations have a number of goals that highlight what Queenslanders said they wanted to be, do or achieve. Each goal (35 in total—labelled G1 to G35) is supported by a number of success factors that describe the outcomes Queenslanders want in detail.

Targets and measures

Each foundation has one or more high-level targets to focus our efforts towards achieving success. Targets (20 in total—labelled T1 to T20) will be tracked by one or more primary measures. They have been selected as lead indicators to monitor progress. Secondary measures complement the primary measures and will track different aspects and give a more complete record of progress.


Where available, baselines have been sourced from existing data sets as a starting point for future reporting.
