Abstract

The Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan (RWQIP) includes objectives to improve land management and to increase a culture of stewardship amongst land managers; targets for best management practice adoption; and a human dimensions target to increase the active engagement of communities and land managers in programs to improve water quality outcomes.

This report is the second of two milestone reports. Together, these reports aim to: (i) inform Reef managers on the prospects for tracking progress towards those objectives and targets, as part of the broader monitoring and reporting requirement of the Plan, and (ii) inform the design of interventions to improve program effectiveness and practice improvement over time.

Specifically, this report presents a synthesis of suitable and available social data against the indicator themes identified in Milestone Report 1, namely: attitudes towards practices, motivations, perceived barriers, perceived behavioural control, past and future behaviour, group norms, trust, cultural norms and cultural artefacts. Broadly speaking, these indicators reflect the psychological, social and cultural factors that together help to characterise factors that influence the adoption and sustenance of positive water-quality farming practices. Combined with the outcomes of a project stakeholder workshop in August 2017 (see OGBR workshop report), this report also frames some preliminary recommendations of where to next.
