Marine Protected Areas Program Plan 2012-14

MPA Program Plan coverThe Marine Protected Areas Program Plan 2012–14 will guide the management of the state’s Marine Protected Areas including all Marine National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries, Marine and Coastal Parks, Marine Parks and the Marine Reserve.

The plan sets out the actions for management until replaced by a longer term strategy after the Victorian Environment Assessment Council (VEAC) hands down its findings from the current inquiry into Marine Protected Area Management in Victoria.

The Marine Protected Areas Program Plan:

  • Provides a detailed program logic that shows how activities are aligned to the Parks Victoria’s objectives.
  • Applies adaptive management to the 12 program areas.
  • Describes the role of Conservation Outcomes in setting clear goals for the marine program over time.
  • Identifies responsibilities for delivery, establishes performance measures and indicators, and includes a timeline for implementation.
