Abstract/Summary Coastal and marine management matters are an important component of regional NRM plans. The Natural Heritage Trust Bilateral Agreement (2004) between the Australian and Queensland Governments states that investments in coastal activities will be part of the broader investment in natural resource management. Additionally, these investments must be consistent with the State Coastal Management Plan and regional plans under the Queensland coastal legislation and assist in achieving outcomes for reef protection. The Guidelines for Regional Natural Resource Management Planning in Queensland (NR&M 2003) that have been developed from the Bilateral Agreement state the need for regional NRM bodies to include coastal and marine management matters in their regional NRM plans because of the interconnected nature of the resource issues and problems. Thus, relevant Australian and/or Queensland government policies and frameworks in relation to coastal, reef, water and marine issues need to be reflected in, and in many cases, contributed to by the regional NRM plans. This includes legislation (e.g. Coastal Protection and Management Act 1995), statutory instruments (e.g. State Coastal Management Plan and regional coastal management plans) and policies (e.g. Reef Water Quality Protection Plan, South East Queensland Regional Water Quality Management Strategy and biodiversity strategies) (Figure 1).
