Knowledgebase for Lessons Learned and Good Practices in the Management of Coral Reefs


Publication Date:

Now, researchers and resource managers can get helpful tips about proven strategies – or mistakes to avoid – in coral reef management in a new “Lessons Learned and Best Practices Toolkit.” It offers access to technical reports, project summaries and other practical information about coral reef management in eight key areas, such as program design, community participation, policy development, monitoring approaches and capacity building. A brief presents a review of lessons learned and best practices in the management of coral reefs based on the analysis of 30 projects funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) related to coral reefs and associated tropical marine ecosystems and 26 non-GEF funded projects. The key lessons learned and recommendations are grouped according to eight priority issues in coral reef management.
