Measures for Social and Economic Monitoring of the Australian Marine Parks

Measures for Social and Economic Monitoring of the Australian Marine Parks
Abstract:

In this report, we develop a set of recommended measures to monitor the social and economic dimensions of the Australian Marine Parks. Our recommendations are based on a review of approaches used nationally and internationally, and a series of regional workshops with marine park managers and experts from around Australia. The report provides a long-overdue synthesis of approaches used to monitor the social and economic dimensions of marine parks in Australia and should be useful both for informing monitoring of the Australian Marine Parks as well as state-managed marine parks.

Project D7 – Supporting the Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Improvement System for Australian Marine Parks

Parks Australia is in the process of finalising a Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Improvement (MERI) System to support adaptive management of Australian Marine Parks (AMPs). The Marine Biodiversity Hub is playing an important role in the development and implementation of this system, building on previous experience in identifying key values and pressures relevant to AMPs, and developing integrated monitoring and reporting programs.
