Running Head: The Growing Population Management of Sydney: An Overview
Executive Summary
    The global expansion of the population has continuously dominated the local government where the immigrants keep coming. The following report provides an overview to the problem of growing population l
eading from the front and affecting the existing available sources. The report highlights some of the major facts and analyzes the projects which are cu
ently run by the NSW government to maintain the balance between the growing population and the availability of the metro facilities to all the newcomers in the city of Sydney.
Introduction
