THE GLADSTONE HEALTHY HARBOUR PARTNERSHIP (GHHP) IS PROUD TO RELEASE THE
2020 Gladstone Harbour Report Card
The Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership (GHHP) presents its sixth annual report card to the community and stakeholders. The 2020 Gladstone Harbour Report Card contains the results calculated using 33 indicators derived from 106 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. Because of this stability, some assessments will now be done every third or fifth year. For the 2020 Report Card, Social, Cultural, Economic and Mangroves were not assessed. For these indicators, the 2019 results, and in the case of Cultural Heritage, the 2018 results have been carried over to 2020.
Overall, the Gladstone Harbour Report Card 2020 grade results were: Environmental health of Gladstone Harbour, good (B); Cultural health of Gladstone Harbour, satisfactory (C); Social health of Gladstone Harbour, good (B); and the Economic health of Gladstone Harbour, good (B).
Not only was 2020 the first time that the Environmental component grade was good (B), but it is also the first time since monitoring and reporting began that the water quality grade was very good (A).
