ANNUAL REPORTS AND STATE OF THE WET TROPICS REPORTS

2015-16 Wet Tropics Annual Report and State of Wet Tropics Report tabled
 

The Wet Tropics of Queensland Annual Report 2015-16 and State of the Wet Tropics Report 2015-16 have been tabled in the Australian and Queensland Parliaments.

The Annual Report satisfies the requirements of Queensland’s Wet Tropics World Heritage Protection and Management Act 1993 and Financial Accountability Act 2009; and the Commonwealth’s Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Conservation Act 1994. It includes a State of the Wet Tropics Report, as required under section 63(1) of the Queensland Act and section 10 of the Commonwealth Act.

This year the State of the Wet Tropics reports on 'Ancient, Endemic, Rare and Threatened Vertebrates of the Wet Tropics’.

The compliance checklist directs you to sections of the annual report where we have addressed disclosure requirements. The checklist ensures that the report complies with all legislative and other reporting requirements of the Financial Accountability Act 2009 and Financial and Performance Management Standard 2009.
