Description

Speaker: Ms Jessica Hoey

Title: Great Barrier Reef Outlook Report 2019 - What is it? What do you know that we should know?

Affiliation: GBRMPA

Abstract: The Outlook Report is an evidence-based report written by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. Preparation for the next Outlook report is underway and we need to arm ourselves with the best available science. The data cut off for information to be used in the report (and to support grading statements) will be 31 December 2018. As part of this process, the Outlook team will be reviewing ‘current’ literature (published between end 2013-2018) to update the data chapters. The aim of the data chapters are to provide an evidence based assessment of the condition and trend of values (e.g. species, habitats, ecological processes, heritage values, and factors that are impacting those values).
The 2019 Outlook Report will be provided to the Minister for the Environment and Energy by 30 June 2019 to table in both houses of Parliament (unchanged) and informs future protection and management of the Reef locally and internationally. I hope you can join me to learn more about the report and discuss how we can best work with you to incorporate the best available science.
