    Report cover

    This report describes findings from year 1 of Project 2.3.3 of the Tropical Water Quality (TWQ) Hub of the National Environmental Science Programme (NESP). The project is entitled ‘Building Indigenous livelihood and co-management opportunities in the northern Great Barrier Reef – ecosystem services and conservation governance for water quality.’ The report also acts as a discussion paper for developing further information, concepts, and planned activities in Year 2 of the project. The wider work is focused on improving societal recognition of the ability of Indigenous Traditional Owners of eastern Cape York Peninsula (CYP) to contribute to water quality improvements necessary for the maintenance of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), and to identify the associated governance, regulatory and market environments that may be required to secure these contributions. The project is a partnership between CSIRO, JCU, Cape York Partnerships (CYPS), and Kalan Enterprises. It is one of a suite of ongoing projects among these partners.
