About this document
Australian Heritage Council submission on the Great Barrier Reef Strategic Assessment - January 2014.
The Australian Heritage Council (AHC) notes that the Strategic Assessment is a large and comprehensive document reflecting the challenges that the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) faces in managing this very extensive and complex ecosystem. It seems clear that most of the Report is soundly based on the best available science and where uncertainty remains, the Authority has drawn on extensive expertise to assist in the assessment process. The Council congratulates the Authority on this impressive document and the effort involved in preparing it.
