In this webinar, experts presented the six-step process of the Manager’s Guide to Coral Reef Restoration Planning and Design. The guide supports the needs of reef managers seeking to begin restoration or assess their current restoration program. Based on global best practices—and tested with managers from Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands—the Guide was developed for reef managers and practitioners, and anyone who plans, implements, and monitors restoration activities.
Together with a suite of tools and templates, the Guide maps out a six-step, iterative process to help users gather relevant data, ask critical questions, and have important conversations about restoration in their location. Use of the Guide culminates in the creation of a Restoration Action Plan to enhance reef resilience and recovery.
