State of the Coral Triangle Report
|(above) covers of the State of the Coral Triangle Reports (ICRS version) submitted by the National Coordinating Committees of the CT6 for the launching during the 12th International Coral Reef Symposium|
The State of the Coral Triangle Report is intended to serve as:
- valuable documentation of existing scientific and economic knowledge in thematic areas;
- an informative tool for knowledge-based management; and
- a reference document for ‘hands-on’ training and capacity building at the national and local level.
The SCTR can also provide the basis for identification of targeted pilot projects for possible implementation by CTI NCCs and other stakeholders. By serving multiple purposes, the report will become a key tool for building continued regional cooperation within the CTI.
The content will cover the following areas:
- biophysical characteristics
- socio economic characteristics
- threats and vulnerabilities
- plan of action initiatives and future plans
To launch the SCTR of the countries and the regional report, a Pre-Conference Symposium to the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS), was organized by the Project in coordination with the Australian Government. The event was entitled "Science and Governance in the Centre of Global Marine Biodiversity: The State of the Coral Triangle Reports Meeting."
The Pre-Conference Symposium featured seven presentations and commentaries from them member of the Science Advisory Committee. Each of the six CT countries had a member of the National CTI Coordinating Committee present highlights of the SCTR. Key messages from the Regional SCTR were also discussed.

The launch of SCTR yesterday is another milestone record by CTI. It is good event, let alone it is in conjunction with ICRS, the coral reefs meeting for all scientists. Thank you to you all that makes this happened. Especially for ADB KM team and support from all partners, US Government (USAID), Australian Government, ADB, GEF, CI, TNC, and WWF.
