Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI) Regional Plan of Action
Coral Triangle in the Pacific Impact and Outcome
Climate Change Adaptation Financing
I.Priority seascapes designated and effectively managed
Priority seascapes designated with investment plans completed and sequenced.
Marine and coastal resources within all “Priority Seascapes” are being sustainably managed.
II. Ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAFM) and other marine resources fully applied
strong legislative, policy and regulatory frameworks in place for achieving EAFM
Improved income, livelihoods and food security of people in coastal communities across the region through a sustainable coastal fisheries and poverty reduction initiative (“COASTFISH”).
By 2020, effective measures in place to ensure exploitation of shared tuna stocks is sustainable, with tuna spawning areas and juvenile growth stages adequately protected.
A more effective management a more sustainable trade in live-reef fish (LRF) and reef-based ornamentals achieved.
Marine protected areas established and effectively managed
A region-wide Coral Triangle MPA System (CTMPAS) in place and fully functional.
IV. Strengthened Capacity in climate change adaptation
Region-wide early action plan for climate adaptation for the near-shore marine and coastal environment developed.
Networked national centers of excellence on climate change adaptation for marine and coastal environments are established and in full operation
V. Threatened species status improved
By 2020, improved status of sharks, sea turtles, marine mammals and other identified threatened species.
