The role of coral triangle initiative on coral reefs, fisheries, and food securities in Indonesia's environmental conservation

This study elaborates on the role of CTI-CFF in dealing with marine ecosystem conservation issues in Indonesia. The results point out that the CTI-CFF's role in Indonesia's conservation efforts include three CFF aspects: food security, fisheries and coral reef conservation. The CTI-CFF program on coral reef issues is CTI-COREMAP and Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), and its Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM) program focuses on fisheries.

Assessing the Effect of Marine Reserves on Household Food Security in Kenyan Coral Reef Fishing Communities

Measuring the success or failure of natural resource management is a key challenge to evaluate the impact of conservation for ecological, economic and social outcomes. Marine reserves are a popular tool for managing coastal ecosystems and resources yet surprisingly few studies have quantified the socialeconomic impacts of marine reserves on food security despite the critical importance of this outcome for fisheries management in developing countries.

The Coral Triangle and Climate Change: Ecosystems, People and Societies at Risk

This report provides for a comprehensive assessment of the impacts of climate change in the coral triangle region. Chapter 3 has a specific focus on the economic value of coral triangle fisheries and importance for food security and livelihoods. Chapter 5 provides an economic profile of the coral triangle countries looking at economic and demographic indicators in the context of the Millenium Development Goals.

Solving the Mystery of MPA Performance: monitoring social impacts. Field Manual (version 1.0)

A partnership of conservation scholars, practitioners and policy-makers, led by WWF and the State University of Papua (UNIPA), has developed simple yet rigorous monitoring systems for documenting and explaining the variation in MPA performance, under real-world operating constraints in West Papua, Indonesia. Drawing on best practice from a diverse range of disciplines, these methods enable conservation scholars to document the impact of interventions across social domains, describe variation in impacts between social groups (e.g. fishers vs.
