Cooperative Research Centre for Coastal Zone, Estuary and Waterway Management
The Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Coastal Zone, Estuary and Waterway Management (the Coastal CRC) was established in July 1999. It received funding for a period of seven years.
The Coastal CRC provided decision-making tools and knowledge necessary for the effective management and ecosystem health of Australia’s coastal zone, estuaries and waterways.
The goal of the Coastal CRC was to bridge the gaps between science, the community and policy making organisations. They conducted quality science within five interlinked themes in management study areas using participatory approaches with stakeholders.« Back to Glossary Index
