Targets are the most important part of this Regional Catchment 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. Targets and leadership arrangements are determined in consultation with relevant departments, agencies and delegated land managers.
An assessment of the marine water quality in Western Port has been undertaken (Method and Condition).

The condition of marine waters has been assessed (Method & Condition) as a basis for the targets. Lead organisations are committed to achieving these targets (Leadership) and arrangements are in place to monitor and report on progress and success (Monitoring & Reporting).
