Improving human and environmental conditions through the Coral Triangle Initiative: Progress and Challenges
Improving human and environmental conditions through the Coral Triangle Initiative: Progress and Challenges* - Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability 2016, 19: 169-181
The Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries, and Food Security (CTI-CFF) is an ambitious marine conservation and governance program engaging six countries in Southeast Asia and Melanesia that has attracted significant international support, including an investment of over $40 million from the United States through the five-year U.S. Coral Triangle Initiative Support Program.
In this paper, the writers examine outcomes of the USCTI documented through the Learning Project (LP) -- a collaborative, interdisciplinary project capturing lessons learned from USCTI and CTI-CFF.
The co-design process and collaborative spirit of the LP allowed it to collect a large body of information from a diverse range of informants in a relatively short time frame and provide important documentation of the achievements and challenges of USCTI.
