The objective of this policy is to define the vision and principles for co-management to be applied in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Critical to genuine co-management is the establishment of a co-management policy platform, clearly stating the Reef Authority’s intent to all Reef stakeholders. The co-management vision and principles will set the parameters of the policy platform and allow for principles to be applied across the Reef Authority’s strategic direction and approaches.
