Analysis of International Funding for the Sustainable Management of Coral Reefs and Associated Coastal Ecosystems
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre

Between 2010 and 2016, more than USD 1.9 billion was committed to implement, monitor and enforce the conservation and sustainable management of tropical coral reefs and associated mangroves and seagrasses, yet coral reef ecosystems alone provide society with living resources and services equating approximately USD 375 billion per year. This analysis explores the intended purpose and spatial and temporal distribution of funding allocations. The alignment of funding with policy ambitions related to coral reefs and associated ecosystems is assessed, along with implications for future investment in the conservation of these ecosystems.

Development of Ocean Governance Strategy for Africa: Summary of Scoping Study and Gap Analysis
University of Dar es salaam, Institute of Marine Sciences

The role of Africa’s oceans and seas in supporting socio-economic growth and development across different sectors is so significant that cannot be overemphasized. Nonetheless, pressures on this vast resource base are constantly increasing not only from the traditional maritime activities, but more from the emerging economic undertakings such as mariculture and offshore energy exploitation. Besides, increasing insecurity in the Africa’s marine waters, enhanced illegal trafficking, and degradation of the marine environment and climate change phenomenon further exacerbate the existing environmental stresses that have significant implications on the governance of the oceans, not only at the level of individual nations, but more challenging at the regional and continental levels.
