Publication Date:

In this document, we describe the process to develop a scientific design of a resilient network of MPAs for the Lesser Sunda Ecoregion, based on a detailed scientific assessment and an extensive stakeholder consultation process. This process included developing a GIS database of best available information, identifying key conservation features, threats and uses of the area, applying state of the art conservation planning tools and facilitating input from relevant government agencies, local stakeholders and scientific experts though a series of workshops and meetings.
