Who’s involved?

The Reef Water Quality Protection Plan 2013 (Reef 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.

As part of the release of Reef Plan 2013, the Australian and Queensland Governments collectively committed a further $375 million over five years. This is primarily being delivered through the Australian Government's Reef Programme including Reef Trust and the Queensland Government's best management practice programs, extension and education, and broader reef water quality initiatives. In early 2015, both governments committed a further $100 million each.

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.
