Coasts and Clean Seas is a Natural Heritage Trust initiative that addresses major coastal and marine management problems identified in the Resource Assessment Commission Coastal Zone Inquiry Final Report (1993) and the State of the Marine Environment Report (1995). It is firmly grounded in ecologically sustainable development principles and as such contributes to Australia s international commitments under the Commission for Sustainable Development. The Australian way of life is strongly dependent on a healthy and sustainable coastal and marine environment. While our coast is in good shape, the pressures on it are increasing, particularly in urban areas, and we need to ensure that our coasts and oceans remain healthy and productive for present and future generations. The challenge is to repair what we can and prevent further degradation. Coasts and Clean Seas is providing $125 million over five years, for the conservation, sustainable use and repair of Australia s coastal, estuarine and marine environments. Coasts and Clean Seas supports a number of complementary programs which focus on practical actions and on-ground works that tackle the causes of environmental degradation, not just the symptoms. Programs include: Clean Seas - to reduce the impact of sewage and stormwater on our oceans; Coastcare - to promote community participation in coastal management activities; Marine Species Protection - to reduce threats to marine species of conservation interest; Introduced Marine Pests - to prevent exotic pests invading Australian waters and to manage existing populations; Marine Protected Areas - to support actions leading to the declaration of marine protected areas for the conservation of marine biodiversity; Coastal Monitoring - to identify and inform management decisions about significant threats to coastal and marine environments; Coastal and Marine Planning - to stimulate partnerships across governments, industry and the community to promote the sustainable use of coastal and marine resources; and Capacity Building - to enhance the skills and knowledge of coastal and marine managers.
