Strategy implementation

Putting the Strategy into action for a better marine estate - now and for the future.

The ten-year Marine Estate Management Strategy is in its fifth year, with $30.7 million allocated to continue delivering close to 100 projects and enable the commencement of 10 new priority projects in 2022 to 2023.

The NSW Government has committed approximately $30 million per annum over the next 6 years of the Strategy to deliver projects through to June 2028.

The Strategy Implementation Plan 2022-2024 outlines how we will reduce key threats facing our marine estate over a two-year period, and describes:

  • 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. A map showing where projects are being delivered is included here.

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.
