Indigenous Reef Advisory Committee
Environment and Energy
Reef Advisory Committees provide advice to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority on actions that can be taken to address the risks to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park identified in the Great Barrier Reef Region Strategic Assessment Report, the Great Barrier Reef Region Program Report, and the Great Barrier Reef Outlook Report 2014. The committees comprise a cross-section of stakeholder interests with expertise and experience in relevant areas, in this instance Indigenous matters. The Indigenous Reef Advisory Committee replaces the previous Indigenous Reef Advisory Committee. The Board of the Marine Park Authority appoints members of the Reef Advisory Committees for a term of three years, and members are eligible for reappointment. Each advisory committee meets two to three times a year. Meetings are generally held in Townsville, North Queensland. Only the Chair position is paid according to Remuneration Tribunal guidelines for appointments after 30 June 2014.
