Indicators are used to monitor and report, in a timely and cost-effective manner, on those aspects of a system that provide the most reliable insight into its overall wellbeing. Using indicators to monitor the effects of resource-use activities on environmental and social health is critical to effective, adaptive and sustainable natural resource management. This report presents an integrated indicator framework and related social indicators developed through research by the Cooperative Research Centre for Coastal Zone, Estuary and Waterway Management (Coastal CRC).
