Community Engagement for the Reef's sake
The Flagship's Great Barrier Reef Floodplain Renewal Project is focussing on
the Tully/Murray catchment as an initial case-study for improving water
quality flowing out onto the reef.
The CSFP has a Steering Committee and three
"action teams" working on biodiversity, production and socio-cultural issues
in the catchment. The action teams operate as reference panels for
scientists undertaking research in the catchment. Scientists make regular
presentations to these teams of industry, community and government
representatives. Initially, the teams provide input on the shape and
methodology of the research project, research results are then presented
back to the group for consideration and inclusion in the WQIP planning
