About this document
In preparation for the Reef 2050 Plan mid-term review, expert advice was obtained from a consortium comprising CSIRO, the Australian Institute of Marine Sciences, James Cook University and Eberhard Consulting. This report provides a summary of the analysis undertaken to underpin the recommendations on scope and process of the midterm review, as well as providing recommendations on additional steps to consider in preparation for the 2020 review. This report is supplemented by a separate Appendix Report that provides a more detailed account of the analysis undertaken.
The development of this report took into account feedback from the established Reef advisory bodies, and builds on their advice on responding to mass coral bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef.
