Our goals, vision

The goal of the CRTR Program is to address key gaps in the world’s knowledge and understanding of coral reefs, and put new knowledge and technology into the hands of decision-makers and reef managers where it can make a difference.

By addressing these knowledge gaps the Program aims to highlight the many policy and management actions that can be taken to reverse negative trends for coral reefs.

The livelihoods of 100 million people living along the coastlines of tropical developing countries, together with those businesses earning billions of dollars from reef-related tourism, rest upon policy-makers and reef managers in these regions taking action to stop over-fishing, pollution and unsustainable coastal development.
