[Extract] A workshop was organised to elicit conservation goals and objectives for the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA) coastal zone for NERP TE project 9.4 "Conservation planning for a changing coastal zone". In this project, spatially-explicit scenarios and impact assessments are used to produce spatial prioritisations for conservation. Following introductions to the concept of goals in conservation planning and to project 9.4, participants discussed goals, assets that relate to these goals and how they can be formulated into quantitative or spatial objectives.

This report summarises the discussions and the main outputs of this workshop. The aims of this workshop were to articulate conservation goals for the GBRWHA coastal zone, to define criteria for choosing assets for the GBR coastal zone, to draw a preliminary list of potential assets and to describe a preliminary method to formulate objectives. Eleven scientists and managers (Table 1) gathered for this one-day workshop on 24 May 2013 in Townsville.
