Flood in development area, northern Queensland

Top
CSIRO has come up with four scenarios that explore how changes in the Great Barrier Reef region, such as climate change and globalisation, will shape the region in 2050.

The catchment adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) lagoon is a region of economic significance and exceptional environmental value. It extends about 2 300 kilometres along the coast of Queensland, from the Tropic of Capricorn to the tip of Cape York.

Careful planning of future land-use and landscape management options is important for:

  • maintaining productivity
  • improving water quality
  • sustaining healthy ecosystems and communities
  • protecting the reef.
  • Libraries and tags
