Four clearly defined objectives are stated as a guideline for the development of this exploratory work within government. The development of the World-Australia model, which forms the core of the project, is based on a world model developed by the Systems Analysis Research Unit of the United Kingdom's Department of the Environment. A description of the structure and economic basis of this model is given, the model currently having three strata or regions. The linking of Australia with the world is conceptually outlined based on extensions of the bias matrix principle to cover both trade in commodities and migration. Another approach of modelling these international links is described. The paper concludes with a discussion of incorporation into the model of anticipated structural change and some possible applications of the model to the analysis of problems in the areas of pollution abatement costs, ecological concerns, climatic change, land and water, energy and food.
