Session 14: Capacity building, public awareness and outreach (Moshira Hassan,
Guy Jobbins)

frequently cross geographical and jurisdictional scales. As such, no single
actor has the ability to enact reef protection. However, by building coalitions
and outreach programmes for reef conservation and management, stakeholders can

organisations, donor agencies, non-governmental organisations and foundations,
the private sector, local communities and the wider public have sought to

This session invites papers that explore themes of:
- The development and evaluation of skills, resources, and institutions for
coral reef conservation, and learning from management successes and failures;
- Communication of coral reef issues to the broader public;
