On behalf of our author team from the US Environmental Protection Agency, US Geological Survey, US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, The Nature Conservancy, and Tetra Tech, I am pleased to announce the publication of a new report:

Action Plan for Restoration of Coral Reef Coastal Protection Services: Case Study Example and Workbook, Supplement to A Manager’s Guide to Coral Reef Restoration Planning & Design<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcfpub.epa.gov%2Fsi%2Fsi_public_file_download.cfm%3Fp_download_id%3D544353%26Lab%3DCPHEA&data=04%7C01%7Ccstorlazzi%40usgs.gov%7C74701558d4c94bd5979308d9fc86a998%7C0693b5ba4b184d7b9341f32f400a5494%7C0%7C0%7C637818477590329830%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C2000&sdata=NaqDQ3rFtSZC0P8UbAPs6w5HFvozBafDwi46Gcgb3Mk%3D&reserved=0>

A Manager's Guide to Coral Reef Restoration Planning & Design supports coral reef managers in developing restoration projects for coral reefs in their locations; it includes a workbook that can be used to document the information assessed and decisions made to create a restoration action plan. As an example of the process, this new Action Plan for Restoration of Coral Reef Coastal Protection Services presents a hypothetical coral reef restoration project, located in the Pacific region, with a focus on the goal of improving the ecosystem service of coastal protection. The action plan, example case study, and workbook in this report are intended to support Manager’s Guide users by (1) demonstrating the type of information that can be usefully compiled in the workbook and converted into an action plan, (2) presenting the current state of knowledge relevant to a coastal protection goal, and (3) helping to inspire ideas of appropriate parallel information to fill in for other goals, reef locations, and management contexts.

Please share this report with your networks of practitioners, researchers and decision makers who may be interested.

Thank you!
