The Knowledge Panel includes a chair and five members.
- contributes input and guidance to key marine estate initiatives such as the threat and risk assessments, the Marine Estate Management Strategy marine park management planning processes and community engagement.
- 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 4-6 times per year, with additional meetings as required, including some out of session work.
