ERAC Summary Documents
A Summary Document is prepared after each meeting of the Ecosystem Reef Advisory Committee (ERAC), to inform other advisory committees serving the Authority, and persons generally (including the public), of the business of the ERAC.
The Summary Document provides a brief report on the major issues discussed at each ERAC meeting. It forms part of the records of the meeting, and so its content is limited to matters raised in the meeting and, where necessary, background details given to the meeting.
Any inquiries should be referred to the GBRMPA's RAC Secretariat, or to the appropriate Member.
Summary Documents for the current term of the ERAC include:
- ERAC 1 - 17 and 18 March 2010
- ERAC 2 - 1 and 2 September 2010
- ERAC 3 - 30 March 2011
- ERAC 4 - 04 October 2011
- ERAC 5 - 29 March 2012 (will be available shortly)
The Ecosystem RAC was appointed by the Board of the Marine Park Authority in November 2009.
The restructure of the GBRMPA in 2008 saw the merging of two Groups - the Conservation, Biodiversity and Indigenous Partnerships Group, and the Fisheries Issues Group - to form the Ecosystem Conservation and Sustainable Use Section.
The two RACs associated with each of those Groups - the Conservation, Heritage and Indigenous Partnerships RAC (CRAC), and the Fisheries RAC (FRAC) - were combined to form the Ecosystem RAC.
