Abstract

Jon Day studied the process to develop Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Zoning Plan as an example of transformative environmental policy reform at an ecosystem-wide scale. This was a comprehensive assessment of policy reform, investigating the key factors that influenced the successful policy outcome. Many lessons will help develop environmental policies elsewhere.
