Responsibility for Australia's increasingly pressured coastal strip is shared by numerous jurisdictions, including local, state and commonwealth governments. This has made fundamental strategic planning for its sustainable development difficult to coordinate. This article reports the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) divisions of Land and Water, Marine Research, and Sustainable Ecosystems are working together to consider the challenge of a nationally coordinated strategic development plan. Rob Vertessy, chief of Land and Water, Tony Haymet, chief of Marine Research and Andrew Johnson, chief of Sustainable Ecosystems, are teaming up the scope of CSIRO's potential contribution to coastal sustainability.
