Guam's coral reef management priorities by Coral Reef Conservation Program (U.S.)( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work presented here is being facilitated by the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (NOAA CRCP) as part of an ongoing effort to develop place-based, local coral reef management priorities in each of the seven U.S. state and territorial coral reef jurisdictions (American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Florida, Hawai'i, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) and conduct capacity assessments to identify the support needed to accomplish those priorities. The first step in this effort has been to work with the core group of coral reef managers (local, place-based) in each jurisdiction to articulate a set of strategic coral reef management priorities. The second, and next, step will be to complete a capacity needs assessment that helps each state and territory realize these priorities"--Introduction

U.S. All Islands Coral Reef Committee strategic action plan 2008-2013 : a collaborative initiative to conserve coral reefs in U.S. jurisdictions by Takiora Ingram( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The U.S. All Islands Coral Reef Committee (AIC) is a made up of marine resource managers from state, commonwealth, territorial agencies and freely associated states working collaboratively with federal agencies to conserve and protect coral reefs in the United States The AIC has prepared this document ('Gold Book') as the Committee's official Strategic Action Plan (2008-2013). This plan builds on the AIC Communications Plan (2006) and the 1999 All Islands Coral Reef Initiative Strategy, ('Green Book') and the 1997 U.S. Islands Coral Reef Initiative ('Blue Book'). However, this strategic plan is different from these earlier strategies, as it focuses on the activities of the Committee as a whole, and the AIC Secretariat. The two previous strategies mainly focused on local needs and funding for each of the jurisdictions. This strategic action plan provides a dynamic road map to achieve the goals of the Committee and Secretariat to protect the coral reefs of the States, Commonwealths, Territories, and Freely Associated States over the next five years. This is a living document, which will be regularly updated and evaluated as part of an iterative process"--Executive Summary
User's guide for the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program MPA checklist( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This user's guide was developed as a reference to be used with the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program MPA Checklist to provide further clarification on the fourteen assessment areas addressed in the checklist, and to assist assessment participants in the selection of a specific tier for each assessment area. The guide includes instructions on how to conduct assessment interviews and how to complete the checklist document. The user's guide also provides a detailed description of the intention behind each of the 14 assessment areas to help the interviewer clearly explain the significance of and differentiate between each tier in an individual assessment area. This helps to ensure that the correct tier is selected so that management capacity can be accurately assessed and all gaps and needs can be appropriately identified. Many of the assessment area descriptions also include a section entitled 'helpful resources' that refers to additional information related to that assessment area that is either made available in the appendix to the user's guide or as a web link"--Purpose
The economic value of the coral reefs of Saipan, commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Saipan's beautiful fringing and barrier coral reefs are scattered along the 68 km coastline. The economic importance of this ecosystem is significant. Besides providing food, shelter and cultural significance for the citizens on Saipan, the coral reefs generate revenue from tourists and recreational users attracted by the beauty of the coral and its inhabitants. The main objective of the study was to carry out an economic valuation of the coral reefs and associated resources on Saipan. The results of the study were derived through five major research methodologies: 1. Household survey 2. Discrete choice experiment 3. Total Economic Value Calculation 4. Spatial analysis 5. Sustainable financing"--Executive summary

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Evaluating the current status of marine protected area (MPA) implementation and management can lead to improved MPA effectiveness and performance. Strengthening MPA management to conserve coral reef resources remains a pillar of NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) efforts both domestically and internationally...With its focus on conservation of coral reefs and the human communities that depend upon them, a priority goal of the CRCP is to support effective implementation and management of marine protected areas (MPAs) and ecological networks of MPAs that protect key coral reef ecosystem components and functions. This MPA Management Assessment Checklist was developed as a simple tool to assess the management of MPAs in priority coral reef sites in U.S. jurisdictions and internationally, areas important to the CRCP and jurisdictional partners. This checklist will allow the CRCP to better understand the needs of its partners in the MPA management community and help managers build and/or maintain the management capacity necessary for successful implementation of their MPA management goals and objectives"--Page [1]
