About the product
This publication presents a series of background papers written by professionals from around the world intended to provide decision support for marine biodiversity protection and human welfare. The volume provides a mixture of concepts, tools and case studies. It assesses strategies for the welfare of the coral reefs, for the people who depend on them and for the broader society who values the beauty and biodiversity of coral reefs. Ultimately the book introduces a proposal for putting some of the concepts into practice, leading to an ideal tool for policy makers for knowledge transfer, decision-making, negotiating and/or conflict resolution.
