The ACFID Sustainable Development Goal Toolkit is based on the CSIRO RAPTA (Resilience, Adaptation Pathways and Transformation Assessment) framework which offers practical guidance in how to apply these concepts in planning projects so they are better designed to deliver valuable, durable outcomes in the face of high uncertainty and rapid change. RAPTA has wide application to plans for improving food and water security, managing climate change, attaining sustainable growth in the Earth’s megacities, and better responding to the accumulating risks that confront humanity and transforming (or protecting) the social and ecological systems.
"The annual rental affordability index (RAI) report is an easy to understand indicator of rental affordability relative to household incomes. It is a crucial tool for policy-makers to track rental affordability trends and inform evidence-based policy responses. The RAI is a valuable tool for quantifying the rental affordability challenge in a way that brings out nuances between places and highlights the experiences of disadvantaged households." (GS Economics & Planning, n.d.)
The Australian rental affordability index (RAI) project partners includes: National Shelter, Community Sector Banking, SGS economics and planning, and the Brotherhood St Laurence.
