The Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan 2017-2022 is a joint commitment of the Australian and Queensland governments. The plan is a collaborative program of coordinated projects and partnerships designed to improve the quality of water flowing to the Great Barrier Reef.

The Australian and Queensland governments have committed more than $2 billion over 10 years to protecting the reef, with an unprecedented level of investment into improving water quality.

This funding is to accelerate our collective efforts to improve the land use practices of everyone living and working in the catchments adjacent to the Reef through a diversified set of actions.

The Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan 2017-2022 builds on 15 years of efforts by governments at all levels working in partnership with landholders, natural resource managers, industry, and research and conservation groups.

Much has already been achieved by landholders and the community to change and improve their practices to protect the reef.
