2005 Sectors listing

The Platform Process Committee has defined the following sectors to be used by the platform project. The purpose of defining sectors is to:
  • group related policy areas into "salons" for discussion
  • encourage wholistic principles and strategies.
  • Provide a classification system for policy planks.

The Federal government defines sectors on an operational basis by grouping them into departments. See:Federal Departments and Agencies

The sector definitions will be tweaked over time. Please use this page to suggest how they might be redefined.
