Subject: EBM Tool Demonstration: Reef Resilience Toolkit by Stephanie Wear
of The Nature Conservancy, July 29/30 at multiple times


Indo-Pacific EBM practitioners, This webinar is being held during your work
hours as well, so please join us to learn about this important tool for
coral reef health!




***Please distribute far and wide, particularly to resource managers in
coral regions.***


The Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) Tools Network is very pleased to
announce that it will be hosting a demonstration of the Reef Resilience
Toolkit by Stephanie Wear of The Nature Conservancy at THREE separate times
on July 29/30 to accommodate practitioners in coral regions throughout the
world. Please register with the most appropriate link below.  There is a
separate registration link for each time, so please register for the time
that works best for you.


Description of the Reef Resilience Toolkit: The Reef Resilience Toolkit
provides coral reef managers with guidance on building resilience to climate
change into the design of MPAs and their daily management activities. The
Toolkit is divided into modules and includes guidance on management
strategies such as conserving fish spawning aggregations, MPA network
design, and developing coral reef monitoring programs. Each module begins
with introductory information defining a problem and providing background
about the system and issues. The Introduction is followed by sections that
provide specific guidelines on implementing resilience-based management. For
example, the introduction to the Coral Reefs module focuses on the problem
of climate change and coral bleaching, followed by guidance on how to design
MPAs and networks to anticipate climate change. This in turn is followed by
case studies demonstrating how managers are implementing these approaches.
