Policy and advocacy in the Coral Triangle


In a changing climate, we need financial mechanisms and policies for sustainable resource management and governance. WWF in the Coral Triangle is active on both fronts to enable the sustainable development of Coral Triangle countries, to galvanize efforts to make sustainable fisheries and tourism a reality.

WWF believes in systems and processes that work for the sustainable management of people and resources, and is collaborating on different levels with institutions, organizations, and initiatives that share this belief.

In the face of climate change and threatened marine ecosystems, meeting the challenge of safeguarding food security, livelihoods, biodiversity, and sustainable fisheries remains paramount.

HOW WE DO IT: Tools and Initiatives

With the involvement of the six Coral Triangle nations, appropriate marine policy issues are raised through the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries, and Food Security, and its Regional and National Plans of Action.

Approaches for moving forward cover such priority areas as tuna, the live reef fish food trade, marine protected areas and marine managed areas, the implementation of the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM), and investments and funding mechanisms in the Coral Triangle.

WWF has also initiated sector-specific platforms, such as the Coral Triangle Fishers Forum, and the Regional Business Forum.

WHAT WE SEE: Objectives

WWF aims to secure funding and investment for regional and national plans of action, and on the ground marine conservation in the Coral Triangle, with the support of industry, financial institutions and public sector funding opportunities as well as philanthropy.

Through its Policy and Advocacy approaches, WWF aims to build on relationships with Coral Triangle nations, as well as the public and private sectors, to galvanize efforts towards more sustainable fisheries and tourism in the Coral Triangle.
