The Reef Water Quality Protection Plan 2013 identifies the need for a number of strategies to drive the implementation of the plan. These strategies detail the work involved in taking action to improve the quality of water entering the Great Barrier Reef, and direct the on-ground work involved in the plan's implementation. A number of government agencies and industry groups are involved in implementing these strategies.
