The landmark report assessing the status of the reefs in the Coral Triangle is now available in Bahasa.
Proceedings of Intergovernmental Forum on Live Reef Food Fish Trade (LRFFT) held in Bangkok, Thailand on January 31-February 1, 2013.
This innovative set of guidelines released on January 19, 2012 has for the first time combined and integrated the principles of fisheries, biodiversity and climate change in establishing effective marine protected area (MPA) networks in the Coral Triangle. In the past, many MPA networks were unsuccessful because they focused solely on one principle and objective. The new guidelines aim to address this concern by enabling MPA networks to simultaneously achieve fisheries sustainability, biodiversity conservation and ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change.
