A WORKING PORT
RICH IN MARINE RESOURCES
The Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership (GHHP) brings together 23 partner organisations interested in maintaining or, if necessary, improving the health of Gladstone Harbour - Queensland's largest multi-commodity port. Formed in 2013, the partners stem from three levels of government, industry, community, traditional owners and the research sector.
2022 REPORT CARD
The Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership (GHHP) presents its eighth annual report card to the community and stakeholders. The 2022 Gladstone Harbour Report Card contains the results calculated using 33 indicators derived from 107 different measures within the four components of harbour health: Environment, Economic, Social, and Cultural.
Monitoring since 2014 has shown that some indicators are stable from year-to-year. Due to this stability, some indicators will only be assessed every third or fifth year. For this reason, Indigenous cultural heritage and mangroves were not assessed for the 2022 Report Card. For these indicators, the 2018 and 2019 results have been carried forward to the 2022 Report Card.
Overall, the Gladstone Harbour Report Card 2021 grade results were: Environmental health of Gladstone Harbour, satisfactory (C); Cultural health of Gladstone Harbour, satisfactory (C); Social health of Gladstone Harbour, good (B); and the Economic health of Gladstone Harbour, good (B).
The 2022 GHHP Technical Report provides a comprehensive overview of the 2022 Gladstone Harbour Report Card and contains the complete results for all report card components, Environmental, Social, Cultural and Economic. The technical report explains the drivers and pressures that could influence the results and includes the methodologies employed to collect data and calculate the final grades and scores. A full overview (including maps) of the areas in which monitoring for all four report card components was conducted is also provided.
The GHHP Education Resource Kit contains activities and assessment pieces that form part of the school curriculum for students from prep to grade 12. The kit aims to provide students of all ages with an understanding of the health testing taking place in the Gladstone Harbour.
