Coastal and Marine Management Strategy

The NT Government is inviting comments on the suggested goal and management principles, the specific objectives and the desired outcomes. The strategy will be based on extensive partner and public consultation and is due to be finalised in 2018.

A Discussion Paper has been prepared as part of the public consultation process. It has been prepared in consultation with key partners and stakeholders. The Minister for the Environment and Natural Resources invited representatives from organisations representing Traditional Owners, industry, conservation, recreation, academia and natural resource management to form a Partnership Group to assist in developing the Strategy. The Partnership Group and seven NT Government agencies held a two day workshop in Darwin to develop a goal, management principles and a series of objectives and long-term outcomes across a spectrum of interrelated environmental, cultural, social and economic themes.
