1 207 ORDINARY MEETING 22 JUNE PROJECT SUPPORT 2012 INTERNATIONAL CORAL REEF SYMPOSIUM Fiona Wilson/ Stefanie Wilson: 1/59/1-01: # RECOMMENDATION: That Council approves financial support of $20,000 for a project associated with the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium, to focus national and international attention on the region s marine research and science capability. INTRODUCTION: This report presents a request received from the organising committee of the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium for $20,000 to support an initiative to directly showcase the Cairns region s marine research and science capability at a national and international level. BACKGROUND: In July 2012 the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies 1 (CoE) will host the 12 th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS 2012) at the Cairns Convention Centre. This conference is held once every four years and the International Society for Reef Studies invited the CoE to organise it in Approximately 3000 delegates, partners and media representatives 80 countries are expected to attend this five-day event. Important criteria in selection of Cairns as host for the event included James Cook University s position in and support for the region; Cairns close proximity to the countries of the Coral Triangle (CT); and as a location where Australia can best display its coral reefs. The Organising Committee of the 12 th ICRS are seeking sponsorship from the Cairns Regional Council to fund a project associated with the Symposium in July The project will focus on showcasing the region s capacity to provide cutting edge scientific research and innovation associated with the sustainability of the Great Barrier Reef and reefs worldwide. The requested $20,000 funding will enable the organisers to take a select group of approximately 80 high profile and influential delegates, invitees and the media to the reef where the outcomes of the region s research can be demonstrated. This will profile the capacity of the region to provide research and innovation and potentially lead to future investment in the Cairns region. 1 The CoE was established in 2005 and is based at James Cook University, with around 250 scientists and postgraduate students. It is the world s foremost coral reef research organisation and is one of the major successes of the Commonwealth government s ARC Centres of Excellence initiative.

2 208 Attachment 1 presents the request for support received from the Organising Committee and a clear overview of the Coral Reef Symposium, the significance of the event in bringing international attention to Cairns and the opportunity the event will facilitate for increased exposure of the regions research and development capability. COMMENT: The initiative for which CoE is seeking funding is not part of the Symposium program but is designed to take advantage of the attendance of a large number of influential delegates and invitees and the press to promote the marine science, research and education capacity of northern Queensland, in particular that associated with research on coral reefs. This will be delivered as a major reef trip for key note speakers, influential delegates, sponsors and press to illustrate research capacity and demonstrate its application to the Great Barrier Reef through presentations from JCU scientists and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. The cost for a reef trip of this nature is estimated at $20,000 (boat hire person capacity). The ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies identify a key benefit of this approach to be the opportunity it affords for the international press to file stories after seeing the outcomes of the science in person on the reef. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies will be investing $120,000 on media at ICRS 2012, with funding received from the Packard Foundation. With many international and national media representatives to be in attendance and the expectation of broad international media coverage of the event, the initiative is presented as a strong opportunity to shine the focus on the innovation of this region. Beyond the immediate impact of the event itself on the region, this request for funding support is focussed on the longer term opportunity of promoting the research and education capacity of the Cairns region, and also potentially in the service industries that could be associated with developments in the Coral Triangle. The proposal states: The CT is a dynamic region and several government delegates will be attending from these countries who will be interested in what Cairns can offer. It is a chance to consolidate Cairns growing reputation as a centre of research and innovation particularly in research services related to the reef but also marine products in general where the Cairns region business community is quite active. We would also like the Cairns Regional Council to take an exhibition booth where they can showcase the winners of the Cairns Tropical Innovation Awards. As the proposal states, this initiative sits within a strong context of the regions growing critical mass in research and development capability. Following on from recent research developments such as the Queensland Tropical Health Alliance, the Australian Tropical Forest Institute and the Cairns Institute, this project will further highlight Cairns as a research and innovation provider and has the potential to drive further developments in the Cairns region. Funding for the Symposium itself has already been received from a number of national and international sponsors including the Australian Institute of Marine Science, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Saudi Arabia), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (USA), and the Queensland Government.

3 209 Letters of support for this proposal and funding request to Council have been received from James Cook University and the Queensland Government Department of Employment Economic Development and Innovation and are presented as Attachment 2 to this report. This initiative directly satisfies the criteria of Council s Economic Development Fund but has clearly missed the opportunity for the formal round of funding assessment. Given the scale of the project and the potential economic opportunity to be realised to directly support the region s strategies to build capacity and profile for research and development and diversification, it is recommended to Council that this project is supported through remaining unspent funds of the 2010/2011 Economic Diversification Fund. Accordingly, it is recommended that this funding is provided with the requirement to complete an acquittal process equivalent to that under the Economic Diversification Fund and to include a presentation back to Council on the outcomes achieved through the funding. CONSIDERATIONS: Corporate and Operational Plans: Council s Corporate Plan Goal 5 states: To increase the region s capacity for long-term economic growth by supporting opportunities for local business and local employment Key Projects, Services and Actions under Goal 5 include: Strengthen Council s support for economic development including tourism and economic diversification Establish policy and guidelines that enable Council to better respond to economic development related proposals seeking Council support Review Council s role in stimulating economic activity through its own policies and operations In addition Council has been directly involved in providing input into the development of the RDA Road Map and is a partner in the development of the TNQ Regional Economic Development Plan, ensuring that Council priorities are directly reflected in broader regional strategy. Environmental sustainability and growing the regions strengths in research and development are key priorities within both the Road Map and the draft Tropical North Queensland Regional Economic Plan. Statutory: The Local Government Act 2009 outlines key principles including good governance and transparent and efficient processes and decision making in the public interest. This report aims to provide good governance as part of a transparent assessment to support this proposal through allocation of funds through the Economic Development Fund program.

4 210 Policy: General Policy 1:05:02 states that Council recognises that there is value in Council supporting specific initiatives or projects that will have significant economic benefits for all or parts of the local government area. This policy provides for both direct delivery by Council and for assistance through the Economic Development Fund for external applications. Financial and Risk: The Economic Development Fund - Diversification is contained within the budget 2010/11. $27,835 remains unallocated/ unspent from the 2010/2011 Economic Diversification Fund which can support the proposed request for $20,000, with no additional budget requirements. Sustainability: The International Coral Reef Symposium and the focus of the proposed project to build profile and investment in the region s marine science and research capability is wholly focussed on both environmental sustainability objectives and also on economic sustainability through diversification. CONSULTATION: This report has treated the recommendations received from Council s regional partner organisations of JCU and the Queensland Government Department of Employment Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI) as direct feedback on the merits of the proposed project. OPTIONS AND CONCLUSION: Council may consider two options in relation to this report: That Council receives the proposal from the organising committee of the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium and approves $20,000 funding support for the proposed project; or That Council receives the proposal from the organising committee of the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium and does not approve or approves a reduced amount of funding support for the proposed project. It is recommended that that Council receives the proposal from the organising committee of the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium and approves $20,000 funding support for the proposed project to showcase the region s research and science capability on the coral reef to a high profile group of international delegates, press and sponsors of the Symposium.

6 212 Attachment No. 1 Funding Submission to the Cairns Regional Council for a Project Associated with the International Coral Reef Symposium in July 2012 Background From the 9 th 13 th July next year the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies 2 (CoE) will be hosting the 12 th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS 2012) at the Cairns Convention Centre. This conference is only held once every four years and the International Society for Reef Studies invited the CoE to organise it in We are expecting between 2000 and 2500 delegates from 80 countries to attend this five day event. Cairns was selected not only because James Cook University (JCU) wishes to support the city where it has a campus and major investment, but also Cairns is: in close proximity to the countries of the Coral Triangle (CT) where Australia can best display our coral reefs, and where we know the delegates will feel comfortable and able to gain the most from a conference which will highlight the latest scientific, conservation, social and economic research relevant to the world s coral reefs. One of our key aims at ICRS 2012 is to highlight the capacity and depth of research expertise in northern Queensland. We are an extremely big player on the world stage when it comes to expertise in coral reef research, conservation and sustainability strategies. Some of our Intellectual Property has the potential for commercialisation as exemplified by the think tank convened last week by the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation involving a range of contributions from CSIRO, AIMS, JCU and the Queensland Government agencies. One such application is the Coral Triangle. The Coral Triangle Initiative focuses on the development of a plan for the sustainability of the biodiversity in the coral reefs and oceans within the marine area encompassed by Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste. This is the biological hot spot for the world s coral reefs and tropical rainforests. USAid, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and other national agencies are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to develop and implement a conservation plan for the region. The expertise in northern Queensland, particularly JCU, has a lot to offer this initiative. One of the Themes at ICRS 2012 will be focused on the Coral Triangle and we will have funds to sponsor a number of influential people from the CT to attend. Some of the ADB management and government officials are intending to launch and present the six CT countries State of the Coral Triangle Report and Fisheries and Aquaculture Economics Report. This will be a significant event. The country representatives doing the presentation are most likely to be senior officials of the ministries/agencies involved in the CTI. This Theme at the conference will be of major significance to ICRS 2012 and enable us to showcase our research, education and capacity building capability to our northern neighbours. 2 The CoE was established in 2005 and is based at James Cook University. It is the world s foremost coral reef research organisation and is one of the major successes of the Commonwealth government s ARC Centres of Excellence initiative. We have around 250 scientists and postgraduate students in the CoE.

7 213 The Coral Triangle session is one of 22 at the Symposium albeit one of the major ones. Others will focus on innovative aspects of coral reef research including genomics, climate change mitigation, fish and fisheries, and the socio economic aspects of sustainability. We have a range of high profile speakers including 8 plenary speakers from around the world. The highlight will be Dr Jane Lubchenco, who Barack Obama appointed as Under secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the US. Other plenary speakers include Peter Kareiva, Chief Scientist of The Nature Conservancy (the world s largest conservation NGO) and Jamaluddin Jompa, Indonesia s chief coral reef scientist and a graduate of JCU. Project Description and Aim We are seeking funding to finance an event which will highlight the science, research and education capacity of northern Queensland; in particular that associated with our research on coral reefs. It is traditional on the day preceding the commencement of the Symposium to host an event for the keynote speakers, influential delegates, sponsors and press. Our intention is that this will take the form of a reef trip where we can illustrate our research capacity and demonstrate its application to the Great Barrier Reef. This will comprise a small number of presentations from not only our scientists but others including the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority on how our innovative science can inform conservation and sustainability strategies for reefs around the world and how this adds to the socioeconomic survival of those dependent on this resource. It would also be possible to feature other relevant innovations highlighted through the Cairns City Council Innovations Awards. Initial costing for the trip based on discussions I held last week was around $20,000. This would cover the hire of a boat with a capacity of taking 100 people to the reef. One of the benefits of this approach is it allows the international press to file stories after seeing the outcomes of the science in person on the reef. We will be investing $120,000 on media at ICRS 2012 with funding coming from the Packard Foundation. Many international and national media representatives will be in attendance with the expectation of broad international media coverage of the event. It will be a great way to shine the focus on the innovation of our region. Economic Benefit The immediate economic benefit will be the presence of 3000 delegates, partners and media representatives (80% overseas) to Cairns but it will offer much more in the longer term. This will be an opportunity to focus on what the Cairns region offers not only in research and innovation but also potentially in the service industries that could be associated with developments in the Coral Triangle. The CT is a dynamic region and several government delegates will be attending from these countries who will be interested in what Cairns can offer. It is a chance to consolidate Cairns growing reputation as a centre of research and innovation particularly in research services related to the reef but also marine products in general where the Cairns region business community is quite active. We would also like the Cairns Regional Council to take an exhibition booth where they can showcase the winners of the Cairns Tropical Innovation Awards.

8 214 Funding as Partnership We very much regard this project as part of our commitment to the Cairns region and James Cook University s partnership with the Cairns Regional Council. It is in both our interests to promote the research and education capacity in the region which will bring more income and investment to local businesses and more opportunity for research at JCU. Recent research developments such as the Queensland Tropical Health Alliance, the Australian Tropical Forest Institute and the Cairns Institute are a good demonstration of this growing strength. This project will further highlight Cairns as a research and innovation provider and has the potential to drive further developments in the Cairns region. This project is not part of the Symposium program but is designed to take advantage of the attendance of a large number of influential delegates and invitees and the press to promote our research and innovation. We have already received funding from a number of national and international sponsors including the Australian Institute of Marine Science, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (Saudi Arabia), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (USA), and the Queensland Government. A full list can be seen at Letters of Support Letters of support have been provided by Professor Chris Cocklin, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research and Innovation at James Cook University and Mr Graham Poon, Chief Executive Officer of TropLinks. These are attached. An idea of media coverage that will be attracted to the region As indicated above, this Symposium attracts a large amount of international media coverage due to its high profile and the fact that coral reefs are a popular topic in the news cycle. We are negotiating the final details right now for one of our sponsors to invest $120,000 towards the media strategy for the Symposium. Apart from delivery at the Symposium, it also entails sponsoring international journalists to attend ICRS The last meeting in Fort Lauderdale in the US had a large international press attendance and news stories on the radio, TV and printed outlets were a daily occurrence. In Cairns for ICRS 2012 we expect no difference with at least two press briefings scheduled each day along with press conferences related to each of the plenary speakers.

9 215 Summary The Organising Committee of the 12 th ICRS are seeking sponsorship from the Cairns Regional Council to fund a project associated with the Symposium in July The project will focus on showcasing the region s capacity to provide cutting edge scientific research and innovation associated with the sustainability of the Great Barrier Reef and reefs worldwide. The requested $20,000 funding will enable the organisers to take a select group of ~ 80 high profile and influential delegates, invitees and the media to the reef where the outcomes of our research can be explained and demonstrated for all to see. This will profile the capacity of the region to provide research and innovation and potentially lead to future investment in the Cairns region.
