Enhanced Extension Coordination

The Enhanced Extension Coordination in the GBR project has been developed as part of the Queensland Government’s Reef Water Quality Program, managed by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF).

What is extension?

Extension is the process of enabling change in individuals, communities and industries. You might not even call yourself an extension officer, but instead an industry development officer, researcher, advisor, agronomist, consultant or perhaps something else.

What is the Enhanced Extension Coordination in GBR project?

A change to land management practices is essential to meet water quality targets for the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) catchment areas. This project improves coordination, collaboration and communication across different producer and extension networks to increase adoption of agricultural land management practices leading to improved water quality.

Regional Coordinators collaborate with extension networks throughout the six GBR Natural Resource Management (NRM) regions to identify ways to better apply and tailor extension services to meet required needs and recommend other services that can support whole-of-farm outcomes.
