Major Integrated Project

Wet Tropics Major Integrated Project

What is the Major Integrated Project (MIP)?


  • Grass roots: a reef water quality program funded by the Queensland Government but designed by the community (shaped by a consortium of over 40 organisations and hundreds of individuals).
  • Understanding the issues: working with farmers to understand the issues and find solutions.
  • Johnstone and Tully: concentrates on catchments where intensive agriculture poses a high risk to water quality.
  • Farms and beyond: the project is working with all parts of the community, because it recognises that water quality is everyone’s responsibility.
  • A mix of actions: things like farm services, catchment repair technologies, local scale monitoring and ecosystem service payments
