Australia's Reef 2050 Plan
I, and also on behalf of Senator O'Sullivan, move:
That the Senate acknowledges that—
(a) on 5 July 2017, the World Heritage Committee unanimously endorsed Australia's Reef 2050 Plan and the progress made to implement this plan;
(b) the decision recognises Australia's significant efforts and investment in the early and effective implementation of the Reef 2050 Plan; and
(c) the World Heritage Committee has not put the Great Barrier Reef on its in-danger 'watchlist'.
And I note the good news about the UN's determination of that plan.
