Who’s involved?

The Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan is a joint commitment of the Australian and Queensland governments. It incorporates and supports the actions of industry, community groups and government that impact on reef health and links with a number of other legislative and planning initiatives.

The Australian and Queensland governments are investing $763 million from 2013-2022 to improve water quality entering the Reef. This includes $405 million in Queensland Government funding through the Queensland Reef Water Quality Program and $358 million from the Australian Government including funding through the Reef Trust.

A number of committees have been established to help ensure a coordinated and cohesive approach to implementation, and appropriate commitment of resources to actions.

Reducing the impacts of land use on reef water quality is not solely the responsibility of governments. A wide range of organisations and landholders have an interest and role in improving water quality flowing to the reef.
