Recognising the window for protecting our coral reef ecosystems is narrow and closing, ICRI members and the Secretariat will work to highlight the critical and urgent need for action at all levels – local, national, regional, and global, to better incorporate science in our actions, strengthen leadership and emerging technologies, while promoting collaboration and communication among stakeholders.
Through the “Plan of Action 2021 – 2024: Turning the Tide for Coral Reefs”, ICRI will: reach out to Indigenous Peoples and local communities to ensure their knowledge and intrinsic values of coral reefs are appropriately reflected; new technologies to augment existing monitoring efforts to provide greater understanding of coral reef health/conditions and enable managers to be more responsive to climate change impacts; and take every opportunity to raise the plight of coral reefs and the actions that can be taken at local, regional, and global levels to secure their protection and recovery.
Start Date: 01/10/2021
