From July-December 2014, six Roundtables gathered information and reported back to the Stakeholder Working Group (SWG).
The Infrastructure for the Economy and Communities of the Gulf Roundtable looked at the following types of infrastructure:
- ports, harbours and associated infrastructure
- navigation aids, marinas, berths, jetties, and boat ramps (council or public)
- reserves, walkways, cycle ways, boardwalks and other recreational infrastructure
- roads, electricity networks, water supply systems, wastewater systems, stormwater systems, undersea cables and other network utilities
- lawfully approved coastal protection works.
The Infrastructure Roundtable examined infrastructure based on four key themes: recreation, economy, transport and utilities.
It aimed to identify:
- existing public, private and network infrastructure
- gaps in infrastructure
- risks to infrastructure including lifeline/natural hazard risks
- future infrastructure needs and priorities
- options and recommendations.
This Roundtable's findings presented to the SWG can be viewed below. Please sign up for our monthly newsletters to stay in the loop.
