Fitzroy Partnership for River Health is facilitating a fledgling National Waterway Report Card Network, with several teleconferences held in recent months and a workshop held in Brisbane on 21 and 22 March 2017. The National Report Card Network is an informal forum where representatives from waterway report card initiatives meet to raise awareness of their activities; exchange knowledge and ideas; learn from each other; and explore opportunities for collaboration to deliver organisational goals and operational efficiencies.
At the workshop, the Network explored various items including marketing, report card thresholds and weightings, leveraging benefits of technology, cultural reporting, collaboration opportunities and communication. According to Fitzroy Partnership Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Johnston, "Our individual waterway initiatives will gather strength when we continue to collaborate and take advantage of opportunities to build awareness and efficiencies between our programs."
