Dear coral-list subscribers:

This announcement/reminder is about the forthcoming International Tropical
Marine Ecosystmes Management Symposium (ITMEMS) to be held in Townsville,
Australia, 23-26 November 1998. The Symposium is coordinated by the
International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) and  its Secretariat currently
hosted in Australia at the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.

ITMEMs will serve as a major forum for discussion of management covering
social, administrative, legal, economic and community information issues,
as well as research and monitoring for management. It will have a key role
in the ICRI review and prioirty identification process that emphasises
continuous improvement in management.

UNEP's Regional Coordinating Unit for the Caribbean Environment Programme,
as contact point for ICRI in the region is helping with the coordinating of
participation from the Wider Caribbean at the Symposium. We would like to
have a good and active representation from the Wider Caribbean (this
includes relevant countries in Latin America). Let us know if you are
interested in attenting, about papers you would like to present and isssues
you would like to see addressed. Participants are responsible for their own
expenses but with enough time we could help you look for funding. For Wider
Caribbean coordination contact me at above address.
