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.

Sustainable Port Development in the WIO Region
Odhiambo, John

There has been an increasing pace of large scale developments along coastlines ranging from railways, roads, Oil & Gas, mining activities and ports. This has been necessitated by the fast growing economies of coastal countries as well as those of the landlocked countries. Ports act as hubs of trade and intermodal systems where road, rail, pipelines and other transport modes meet for purposes of trade enhancement. They therefore form an integral part of current global economic development since seaborne trade actually accounts for about 90% of shipping worldwide.
