Evaluating Effectiveness of Coral Reef Management Strategies 
4-7 Assessments of Coral Reef Management Effectiveness 

Regardless of the efforts and resources invested in coral reef protection, there is concern about the level of management effectiveness at global and local scales. It should be improved at least 10%. Few marine protected areas have measured their effectiveness level. In the session, 4.7 those case studies are welcomed as well as the cases that are starting to implement phases of the process to assess management effectiveness. In general, this session will allowed the presentation and discussion of the effectiveness of specific strategies of management (e.g. repopulation of commercial species) to promote the analysis of what should be improved and at what extent; also what should be discouraged because it is not economic, ecological or socially acceptable.

Aim: To gather scientists from different regions who have designed and/or applied methodological frameworks to assess management effectiveness in order to present case studies and recommendations to coral reef managers, users, researchers and ecologists of the world. 
Scope: To combine multidisciplinary knowledge and different objectives of conservation and sustainable use in coral reef areas

Please send your abstracts about effectiveness assessments of coral reef management schemes or strategies that do /do not allow activities such as tourism, sustainable fisheries and mariculture besides of protection. Please submit your abstract by 25 December 2003 at http://www.plando.co.jp/icrs2004/: click on 'Call for Papers' and go to 'Abstract Submission'.
