Collaboratively prepare and implement a Biodiversity Connectivity Strategy incorporating latest science on climate change impacts.
A region-wide, agreed, connectivity strategy, taking into account current science including climate change, will maximise the outcomes from connectivity investment and can inform plans and policies that can have either a positive or perverse impact on biodiversity resilience.
Review and refine collaborative prioritisation frameworks to factor in projected future climate change impacts.
Building on existing prioritisation frameworks to take account of the need to respond to, and prepare for, future invasive species threats will be critical to maximising limited resources to build ecosystem resilience.
Develop a program to support industries to make well informed decisions NOW about changes to practice that will build resilience.
Providing industries with a greater understanding of the challenges/opportunities that the future will bring - using interactive and compelling technology, will enable people to plan their response more proactively, and have a greater influence over their own future.
Strategically and collaboratively conduct restoration projects in priority locations across the Wet Tropics, to improve landscape connectivity and increase ecosystem resilience.
Targeted, strategic restoration projects can make the most of the limited and contested funding available, while delivering strong biodiversity outcomes and improving landscape resilience and ecosystem function.
