Targets are the most important part of this strategy because they define our collective intent and direction. They describe what we aim to achieve, by when and the parameters we will use to monitor and report.
An assessment of the current condition of coasts across the region has been undertaken (Method and Condition).
The targets below describe the condition we expect for the future. The aim is to, where realistic, at least maintain the current environmental condition as indicated by the amount and quality of native vegetation in the coastal zones.

Lead organisations are committed to achieving these targets (Leadership) and arrangements are in place to monitor and report on progress and success (Monitoring & reporting). Targets and leadership arrangements will be determined in consultation with relevant departments, agencies and delegated land managers.
It is expected that a Coastal Action Plan will be developed for the coast of the Port Phillip & Western Port region by the Victorian Government (led by the Central Coastal Board). The plan may lead to these targets being revised and updated.
