Sustainable Oceans and Coasts: South Australia Perspectives

On 18 September 2020, Future Earth Australia hosted the fourth in a series of online consultation workshops in each state and territory across the nation, for its Ocean and Coastal Sustainability initiative. 

22 attendees in South Australia contributed to the discussion, representing:

  • the research sector, from Flinders University and the University of Adelaide
  • all levels of government working across science and environmental protection, fisheries, regional council networks, and water planning
  • industry and business, particularly in fisheries and tourism
  • civil society, namely environmental protection groups and policy and science advocates

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