The public consultation period on the draft updated Reef 2050 Long Term Sustainability Plan has closed. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

The Australian and Queensland governments are reviewing the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan, also known as the Reef 2050 Plan. This plan is Australia’s long-term strategy to protect and manage the Great Barrier Reef.

The plan sets clear actions, management goals, objectives and outcomes. These drive and guide the short, medium and long-term management of the reef.

The review and drafting of the updated Plan is being conducted by:

  • Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment
  • Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority
  • Queensland Government Office of the Great Barrier Reef.

Scope of the review

The 2020 Review is the plan’s first 5-yearly review. We are reviewing the Plan to ensure it contains the right priorities and actions to support the health and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef.

How you had your say

We invited all Australians to have their say on the draft updated Plan. Public consultation on the draft updated Reef 2050 Plan closed on 30 September 2020.These views and insights were shared through an online survey and written submissions.

What happens next

Your feedback will inform the final updated Plan. We expect for this to be released in early 2021.
