The Coral Triangle Marine Protected Area System aspires to become a region-wide, comprehensive, ecologically representative and well-managed system of marine protected areas (MPAs) and MPA networks. The development of this system will proceed primarily through the implementation of ecological, social, and governance MPA networks at the sub-national scale.
The report highlight the activities and results generated from a 2-day workshop on Branding and Communication Workshop.
It also portrayed the goal of communication activties in 2016.
The agenda highlights provisional activities of the 11th CTI-CFF Senior Officials' Meeting (SOM-11) developed by Regional Secretariat.
The 4-day Sulu-Sulawesi Seascape Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM)
Implementation Planning Meeting was the first multi-national meeting in the Coral Triangle (CT)
region aimed at developing operational plans to implement transboundary EAFM. The meeting
was supported by the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security
The Monitoring and Evaluation System (M&E System) Operation Manual has been developed as a guide for the Regional Secretariat, the Technical Working Groups (TWGs), the National Coordinating Committees (NCCs) and the implementing partners of the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF).
The Coral Triangle covers an area between the Indian and Pacific oceans that represents the global epicenter of abundant marine life and diversity. The region surrounding these oceans includes some or all of the land and seas of six countries—Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste. The State of the Coral Triangle Reports provide general information on the status of biophysical characteristics; governance; socioeconomic characteristics; and threats to, and vulnerabilities of, the coral reef ecosystems of these six countries.
The Economics of Fisheries and Aquaculture in the Coral Triangle (EFACT) is the first report of its kind that consolidates primary and secondary information on fisheries and aquaculture using a regional lens and analytical tools from economics. The EFACT is an output of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) technical assistance—Regional Cooperation on Knowledge Management, Policy, and Institutional Support to the Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI).
This study analyzes stakeholder perceptions of how the Coral Triangle has benefited from the US CTI Support Program and what tangible outcomes at the regional scale have been cascaded to the local scale. The study also provides important guidelines for future projects in terms of implementation strategy and thematic needs.
