Reef Water Quality Protection Plan

The Reef Water Quality Protection Plan (Reef Plan) is a collaborative program of coordinated projects and partnerships designed to improve the quality of water in the Great Barrier Reef though improved land management in reef catchments. The plan is a joint commitment of the Australian and Queensland Governments. Its primary focus is diffuse source pollution from broadscale land use. This is pollution that comes from a wide range of different sources and cannot be directly attributed to one point of dispersal, such as a pipe or waste outlet. Reef Plan sets ambitious but achievable targets for improved water quality and land management practices and identifies actions to improve the quality of water entering the reef. Initially established in 2003, the plan was updated in 2009 and 2013. It details specific actions and deliverables to be completed by 2018 when Reef Plan will be reviewed.
