Marine Estate Expert Knowledge Panel
The Marine Estate Expert Knowledge Panel (Knowledge Panel) was established in 2013 to provide independent expert advice to the Marine Estate Management Authority (Authority) spanning ecological, economic, social sciences and coastal land use planning.
The Panel includes a chairperson and five core members.
- contributes input and guidance to key marine estate initiatives such as the threat and risk assessments, the Marine Estate Management Strategy and marine park management planning processes
- guides research by identifying key knowledge gaps that will support evidence-based decision making.
The Knowledge Panel's effectiveness, performance and progress of work undertaken is reviewed annually by the Authority and is reported in the Marine Estate Management Authority's annual report.
The Knowledge Panel meets regularly, approximately 3-5 times per year.
