State of the Coral Triangle Reports
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 reports also outline the countries’ plans and initiatives and progress toward the conservation and sustainable use of these ecosystems.
