The 2015 agreement reflects the shared vision for the future outlined in the Riff 2050 plan and renews the Australian and Queensland government`s commitment to the protection of the Great Barrier Reef, including its outstanding universal value. Management plans have been developed for intensive or particularly vulnerable island and reef groups, as well as for the protection of threatened species or ecological communities. Management plans complement shingles by addressing specific problems for an area, species or community more precisely than can be achieved by broader land use plans. An authorisation system is used to implement land use plans. For reefs around the world, including the Great Barrier Reef, it is essential that local, regional and global measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions be implemented effectively. Although Australia is a partner in international action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Paris climate agreement, it must be supported by improving the GBR`s resistance to climate change by reducing local pressure (adapted to the management of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park). State Party Report to the World Heritage Committee on the State of the Great Barrier 2015 The Riff 2050 Plan was first developed in 2015 and has been the subject of two revisions: the 2050 Reef Long-Term Sustainable Development Plan was included in the agreement as a timetable, giving the 35-year-old project the highest possible level of correspondence between national and national governments. Like all coral reefs around the world, the Great Barrier Reef is increasingly under pressure from a number of sources, particularly climate change, and one of the symptoms is massive coral bleaching in 2016-17, the worst GBR has experienced. After the maximum temperatures of March 2017, 67 per cent of the coral died on a 700-kilometre northern stretch of the GBR, potentially the largest coral loss ever recorded on the GBR. The effects of climate change are not only on the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem, but also on the cultural values of traditional landowners; Economic values for the tourism and fishing industry that depend on a healthy GBR; Social values for communities along the coast, for which the reef is part of their daily lives; and the wider Australian and international community, which sees it as an irreplaceable icon – belonging to the global community.

The Reef 2050 Advisory Committee was established to advise the GBR Ministerial Forum on Strategic Reef Policy Issues and implement the Riff 2050 Plan, one of the recommendations of a 1975 review of the Great Barrier Reef in the Marine Park, published by the government in 2006, was the development of an “Outlook Report” every five years to document the overall state of Grand Baref Marine Park. , effective management and pressure on the ecosystem. The Outlook 2009 and 2014 reports were an important source of information for Reef 2050`s comprehensive long-term sustainable development plan, jointly developed by the Australian and Queensland authorities. Published in 2015, the Riff 2050 plan abandons investment in reef protection and gives leadership to the many organizations and individuals working to improve the health of the reef. The revised Riff 2050 plan (2018), presented as a result of the mid-term review, focuses on immediate attention priorities that address the gaps identified in the 2015 plan. The emphasis is on the Commonwealth and Queensland governments and the Community cooperating and sharing a strong commitment to protecting the Great Barrier Reef for future generations. The protection of GBR`s universal excellence and responsible economic development are essential for all Australians, but are not mutually exclusive. Therefore, a risk management approach to the regulation of activities that work next to and within the GBR has benefits for all parties.
