Program 12 will have four projects designed to assist environmental managers, industry and Indigenous and community groups to manage the Wet Tropics bioregion. This is a complex and often highly contested landscape with many competing interests.

Program 10 will have two projects designed to capture social and economic information from Great Barrier Reef industries and coastal communities. One will be the start of a long-term compilation and tracking of essential socio-economic indicators to detect spatial and temporal trends in human uses of the region and to monitor variations in economic activity. Both will be useful in forecasting trends and providing the human dimension to scenario planning by coastal managers.
