We have recently published our 2023-25 strategic plan.
The strategic plan outlines NPAQ’s vision for the future of Queensland’s national parks and the ways in which NPAQ will help to achieve this.
The 2032 Olympics and Paralympics being hosted in Brisbane is a key driver for NPAQ wanting to increase our profile and capability, and the appointment of a CEO and our new strategic plan have been designed to help achieve this.
Our Vision: A world-class network of protected and conserved areas across Queensland in which nature and people thrive.
- To actively promote the preservation, expansion, effective management and appreciation of Queensland’s network of protected and conserved areas.
- To advocate for a Queensland network of protected and conserved areas that includes at least 30% of our lands and 30% of our waters by 2030 (“30 by 30”).
Our Strategic Objective:
By the end of 2025, NPAQ will have driven a step change in the expansion, effective management and appreciation of Queensland’s network of protected and conserved areas.
The plan focuses on five strategies:
- Grow our profile and influence to become the go-to advocacy organisation for Queensland’s network of protected and conserved areas
- Demonstrate our unique value to the Minister responsible for the Environment and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service
- Strengthen our organisational capacity, efficiency and effectiveness
- Generate sufficient income to sustain our business operations
- Elevate our outreach to build greater appreciation for Queensland’s network of protected and conserved areas
Within each of these areas, NPAQ’s key action and performance indicators have been outlined.
With this plan, NPAQ is aiming to ensure the long-term conservation of Queensland’s national parks and the protection of their valuable biodiversity. The plan is a commitment to ensuring that Queensland’s parks remain healthy and accessible for generations to come.
The strategic plan will be discussed in more detail at the next NPAQ members meeting in March (see upcoming events on the NPAQ website for more details).
