Stakeholder and Traditional Owner Engagement

RRAP works with Traditional Owners, reef stakeholders and the general public to better understand how people see the risks and benefits of reef interventions and discuss why interventions are needed. This collaborative measure will help inform plans and priorities so that interventions meet community expectations.

Key outcomes

  • Understanding public perceptions of reef restoration and adaptation, the risks and benefits of R&D and intervention implementation, as well as opportunities to deliver community and stakeholder co-benefits
  • Designing and evaluating best-practice, place-based, engagement opportunities for reef communities and the general public
  • Involving stakeholders, reef Traditional Owners and communities in co-design, evaluation and adaptive management of the R&D program.
