Dear coral-listers

In the mini-symposium 'Critical appraisal of local, customary,
participatory and co-management' [Theme 4 Session 8], acknowledged
experts and investigators will debate the origins of local, customary,
participatory and co- management systems, as well as identifying the
strengths, conflicts and challenges faced today and expected in the
future of management as means to viable stewardship of the world's
reefs. The questions will be how to achieve system resilience, and as to
what modifications and adaptations will render management regimes
successful in terms of resource sustainability and ultimately
coexistence of humans and coral reefs. This will be a cross-disciplinary
discussion with the likelihood of a follow-up workshop-style satellite
meeting after the formal presentations. We hope to have input from: Tim
Adams (SPC, New Caledonia), Richard Pollnac (URI, USA), Kenneth Ruddle
(Kwansei Gakuin University, Japan), Allan Smith (CANARI, St. Lucia),
Joeli Veitayaki (USP, Fiji), Alan White (Tetra Tech EM Inc.,
Philippines), Leah Bunce (NOAA, USA), Guy Fontenelle (ENSA, Rennes,
