People and Reefs: Successes and Challenges in the Management of Coral Reef Marine Protected Areas

This report documents 13 coastal coral reef management initiatives, operated under the ICRAN framework. Although, all case studies were formally accepted, due to unforeseen circumstances/political tensions only eight of these initiatives were presented at the International Tropical Marine Ecosystem Management Symposium 2 (ITMEMS 2), held in Manila, Philippines, 24–27 March 2003, as part of the ICRAN-sponsored session, “The Role of Protected Areas in Management”. In this workshop, in addition to presentations, UNEP Regional Seas, partners, managers and practitioners from a number of ICRAN sites shared their experiences in management of, lessons learned from, and challenges faced by their particular park. They also discussed how ICRAN can contribute towards addressing site priorities and needs as well as future learning opportunities.
