Strategy implementation


Putting the Strategy into action


The ten-year Marine Estate Management Strategy is in its third year, with $28 million allocated to support the delivery of over 100 projects in 2020 to 2021.

An implementation plan (PDF, 5020.33 KB) for Stage 2 (2020-21) outlines:

  • the projects underway
  • the agencies and partners delivering those projects
  • when and where the projects will be delivered.

The projects are managed under nine initiatives.

2020-21 builds on the key achievements in Stage 1 (PDF, 1161.87 KB), which concluded on 30 June 2020.

Our partners in the delivery of the actions

Achieving outcomes continues to depend on strong collaboration across government, business, land managers, interest groups and the community.
