The Reef Programme is the Australian Government’s contribution to the goals and targets of the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan 2009. A short list of seven R&D topics and supporting science synthesis and integration activities was developed to support implementation of the Programme.
These topics represent key information gaps identified through a review of the Reef Plan 2009-2013 Research, Development and Innovation Plan, the 2013 Reef Water Quality Scientific Consensus Statement, the Reef Rescue investment prioritisation multi criteria analysis project, and from outcomes of the 2013 Reef Rescue regional science forums.
The short list was developed jointly by the Department of the Environment and the Department of Agriculture.
