Offshore Laws and Governance for Reef Restoration and Blue Carbon Activities

We are engaged with a team of interdisciplinary researchers across Australia in the fields of law, science and social science to undertake a research project for the National Environmental Science Program.

Led by James Cook University, the project will identify, analyse and critique the law and governance relating to reef restoration and blue carbon activities across various Australian states, and identify areas for law reform. Our researchers will bring their expertise to focus on law, policy and governance in South Australia and Tasmania, while contributing to the broader critical analysis of Australia as a whole.

Project outputs

We will deliver a report to the Australian government that explains, analyses and critiques the law, and identifies opportunities for law reform.
