Outline Integrated Coastal Resource Management

Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI) Regional Plan of Action

Coral Triangle in the Pacific Impact and Outcome

Country Priorities

Climate Change Adaptation Financing


Cti regional plan of action
CTI Regional Plan of Action Integrated Coastal Resource Management

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.

CTI Regional Plan of Action Integrated Coastal Resource Management

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.

Ensure food security

Build climate change resilience

Halting the decline in ecosystem productivity

Sustainable local community development

Pacific countries priorities
Pacific Countries Priorities Integrated Coastal Resource Management

Fiji: Locally Managed Marine Area community based management in Ra province

PNG: Managing land-based threats and identifying livelihood opportunities and EAFM in Manus Island

Solomon Islands: ICRM & EAFM witin community based program in Malaita and Isabel provinces

Timor Leste: ICRM & EAFM in Atauro Island & Batugede

Vanuatu: ICRM & EAFM in coastal communities

Priorities with funding gaps
Priorities – with funding gaps Integrated Coastal Resource Management

Regional Funding Priorities

Study on welfare impacts of climate change across CT

Social and natural impacts of climate change identified and database

Solomon Islands

Help coastal communities adapt to climate change

Inshore fisheries mapping activities

Timor Leste

Mangrove rehab as climate adaptation tool

Climate change information center

The continuum of adaptation financing Integrated Coastal Resource Management

From vulnerability to Impacts

Traditional development funding New and additional adaptation funding

Funding mechanisms for adaptations to climate change
Funding Mechanisms for Adaptations to Climate Change Integrated Coastal Resource Management

Pilot Program for Climate Resilence - to address capacity, knowledge and resources constraints to achieve climate resilience.

Climate Investment Fund - $75m grant over a five year period

ADB -- PPCR activities in Tonga and PNG, & regional level

World Bank -- PPCR activities in Samoa

Country level : Samoa ($25m grant), Tonga ($15m grant) & PNG ($25m)

Region-wide interventions covering 14 Pacific DMCs ($10m)

Australia: AusAID and Dept. of Climate Change & Energy Efficiency


Implementing partners: SPREP, SPC, FFA, PIFS

Conclusion Integrated Coastal Resource Management

ADB investments and technical assistance on climate change will double from $2.5B annually to $5B by 2020

Improve links of current initiatives to past or on-going investments and support programs

- Country partneships strategies; business plans

- Disaster risk reduction strategies and frameworks

- National adaptation plans

Enhance integration of CCA & DRR and mainstreaming of these into development processes and roadmaps
