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.

Governance of the seamounts in the Southwest Indian Ocean (SWIO)
L'Institut de recherche pour le développement

In the regional governance of the Indian Ocean developed for the high sea and areas adjacent to it, the place given to the management of areas beyond the national jurisdiction of coastal States is very marginal. This is the case for the seamounts, some of which >200 nautical miles EEZ will be attached to countries claiming an extension of their continental shelf to guarantee the exclusive rights of exploitation (benthic living or mineral resources), whereas other will keep an open-access status. However, all of these highly productive zones are at the crossroads of fisheries, ecosystems conservation and governance considerations for their management.
