Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN) Pacific Workshop, 12 to 14 October, Honolulu, USA (by UNEP)
This scientific workshop is a key activity towards preparation of a regional GCRMN coral reef status report, and will review data, discuss and agree on regional and national analyses and data management. The overall objectives of the process are to create a comprehensive inventory of reef data in the region and improve access to such data; to identify key drivers of reef change and provide actionable management and policy recommendations as well as recommendations for future monitoring; and to revitalize the regional GCRMN network and strengthen regular reporting. The workshop is jointly organized by UN Environment, the Secretariat for the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Centre de Recherches Insulaires et Observatoire de l’Environnement (CRIOBE). The activity directly contributes to implementation of UN Environment Assembly resolution 2/12 paragraph 14 as well as SAMOA Pathway paragraph 44b, and indirectly to 58e.
