The IUCN World Conservation Congress, held in Honolulu in September 2016, provided the opportunity for a workshop to showcase some of the approaches applied in the Coral Triangle region. A workshop organised in partnership with the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF), Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, and WWF, was held to share lessons from several MPAs designed in collaboration with key stakeholders and those that work to protect biodiversity, people, and their livelihoods and help manage industries such as ﬁsheries and tourism. The target audience included key decision makers: MPA managers; government representatives; ﬁsheries and tourism industry players; community members; and coastal resource owners and users.
This is a report of that workshop.
