Background -The Regional Working Group on Coral Reefs

During the preparatory phase of the SCS Project (2002-2004), actions at the national level within the coral reef sub-component included the establishment or re-vitalisation of National Committees or technical working groups, to review national data on biodiversity; management; restoration and development activities impacting each habitat; research and publications; economic evaluation; institutions and legislation; and development of compatible, inter-linked national systems for regional data management. These preparatory actions have provided the background for the development and updating of national action plans for coral reefs in the South China Sea and Gulf ofClick to Access Coral Reef Demo Site Map Thailand, including required legislation, in order to maintain nationally important habitat areas.

At the regional level, the Regional Working Group on Coral Reefs has been working to develop guidelines for national management plans to maintain regionally significant habitat areas of transboundary significance; draft and finalise, for adoption by governments, the criteria for the selection of priority transboundary habitat areas; and apply the criteria to identify and prioritise areas for future management, protection/restoration. A key outcome has been the selection of priority sites within each habitat class for initiation of demonstration projects, and Regional Working Group has agreed upon regional targets and priority actions for inclusion in the revised Strategic Action Programme (SAP).
