Professor Rolfe was one of the lead authors on the Scientific Consensus Statement, as he was responsible for working on the economic and social factors affecting landholder adoption of best management practices. Dr Windle also made a major contribution to that chapter.

Both of these contributing academics are based on Rockhampton Campus.

Reef Plan 2013 sets the scene for work for the next five years. It is available on the Reef Plan website .
