WHAT’S IN THE 2020 REPORT CARD?
The 2020 Report Card (reporting on data from 1st July 2019 to 30th June 2020) reports on a variety of environmental indicators in our region’s freshwater, estuarine, and marine environments. If you would like physical copies of the Report Card for your business, school or organisation, please enquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Responding to the regions’ waterway health issues is the responsibility of all individuals and groups within the community. This report contains case studies of the region’s industries and local communities responding to the challenge of improving or maintaining our waterway health here in the Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac region.
WHO WE ARE
The Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac Healthy Rivers to Reef Partnership (HR2RP) represents 30 organisations committed to understanding and improving the health of Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac waterways and marine environments. From ports and resources, to agriculture, conservation and natural resource management, research and Traditional Owners – diversity amongst Partners ensures all sectors are at the table. The Partnership allows collective access to the best available science in waterway and marine monitoring programs, representing an investment of more than $4 million on an annual basis.
Our commitment is to:
- Confirm a long term approach to the management of the region’s waterways and marine environment in a holistic manner
- Communicate information effectively
- Support decision making
- Be specific to the Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac region
The Partnership draws on existing programs and collaborations, where possible, to ensure as much consistency across Queensland report cards, such as using the Reef 2050 Plan Independent Science Panel. More detail on how existing programs are being integrated into the Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac report card is provided in the Program Design.
The Partnership is hosted in the Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac Region by Reef Catchments Limited.
