Program Design

The Program Design was prepared by the Partnership’s Technical Officer with support from the Technical Working Group and reviewed and endorsed by the Partnership and the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan Independent Science Panel (ISP).

It is specific to the region and is created as a framework to guide the development of the report card, with technical reports providing further support.

Information on the region, potential data sources, linkages with other programs, and reporting zones for the report card are all contained within the Program Design.

The document details the indicators and indicator categories that will be used to report on the environmental condition of freshwater basins, estuaries, inshore and offshore marine environments, as well as the social, economic, and cultural indicators and indicator categories.
