This report explores the history of Traditional Owner attempts to secure a more “joined-up” approach across the GBR and revisits their core aspirations regarding the management of sea country. It then presents the results of consultation with Traditional Owners regarding the effective implementation of Reef 2050 and of the Tropical Water Quality Hub’s Indigenous Engagement and Participation Strategy. This report provides the key output required from the research project, detailing “the coordinated Indigenous framework that has been developed” and showing “how Indigenous participation in sea country management can be increased”.
