Sustainable Oceans and Coasts: Northern Territory Perspectives

On 25 September 2020, Future Earth Australia hosted the seventh in a series of online consultation workshops in each state and territory across the nation, for its Ocean and Coastal Sustainability initiative. 

Eleven attendees in the Northern Territory contributed to the discussion, representing:

  • the research sector, from Charles Darwin University and CSIRO
  • Traditional Owners and managers across Country
  • Territory government, including fisheries and primary industry
  • civil society and community, namely natural resource management groups and advocacy groups

This document summarises discussions held around the fundamental elements, both from a Northern Territory perspective and pertaining to the Northern Territory and Australia more broadly, which will define the National Strategy; vision, knowledge, institutional design and governance, community engagement, and implementation.
