Marine and Coastal Hub Annual Progress Report, 2022. National Environmental Science Program.

May 2023


During the 2022 reporting period the Marine and Coastal Hub progressed projects under Research Plan 2021, finalised Research Plan 2022 and embarked on developing Research Plan 2023. There was continued engagement with the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water and other research users. During the year the Hub also worked with the Steering Committee to develop and endorse a ‘narrative’ that illustrates the hub vision: integrating i) natural capital supporting economic and social values, ii) improving Indigenous futures (through engagement and participation), and iii) innovations in monitoring and decision-making. There is also an agreed position that projects should aim to add value, leverage additional resources, and be innovative where possible. They should also be co-designed to ensure clear pathways to influence policy and decision-making.
