Summary report: the cost-effectiveness protocol used to assist in the prioritisation of the second phase of Reef Trust investment. Final Report to the Department of the Environment.
Abstract and Figures
This report has been prepared by the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) for the Department of the Environment. It outlines the cost-effectiveness estimation process developed by AIMS that has informed the prioritisation of management interventions for investment under the second phase of Reef Trust. The Reef Trust is a Commonwealth Government programme designed to strategically deliver funding in the Great Barrier Reef and catchments, focusing on known critical areas for investment – improving water quality and coastal habitat along the Reef, controlling outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish, and protecting threatened and migratory species, particularly dugong and turtles. This report provides: (1) an overview of the cost-effectiveness estimation process; (2) a summary of the cost-effectiveness estimates of the nine proposed management interventions under the second phase of Reef Trust; (3) an interpretation of the cost-effectiveness estimates, including a prioritised list of proposed management interventions, ranked in order of cost-effectiveness, to assist the Environment Minister in making decisions on investment through the Reef Trust; and (4) advice on opportunities for improvement in any future application of the cost-effectiveness estimation process.
