Sustainable Oceans and Coasts: Tasmania Perspectives

On 11 September 2020, Future Earth Australia hosted the first in a series of online consultation workshops in each state and territory across the nation, for its Ocean and Coastal Sustainability initiative. 

35 attendees in Tasmania contributed to the discussion, representing:

  • the research sector, from CSIRO and the University of Tasmania
  • all levels of government working across climate, fisheries, local planning, conservation, and primary industry
  • industry and business, particularly in aquaculture and tourism
  • civil society and community, including natural resource management and advocacy groups

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