Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program (RRAP)

The Reef Restoration and Adaptation Program (RRAP) is a partnership to help the Great Barrier Reef resist, adapt and recover from the impacts of climate change. Many of the proposed interventions being investigated by RRAP will include activities that have not previously been considered within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The RRAP Regulatory Subprogram aims to help develop a robust and enabling regulatory environment for reef restoration and adaptation, and a regulatory and policy best-practice for reef adaptation and restoration. This subprogram is being delivered by the Regulatory and Policy Environment project, which will investigate and enhance capacity of existing regulatory and policy frameworks for novel interventions on the Great Barrier Reef, in consideration of RRAP Research and Development and subsequent deployment of interventions.
