Restoration of coral reefs can be used as one tool to promote resilience and is best used in combination with other resilience-based management strategies.

This Coral Reef Restoration Module compiles the latest scientific guidance and tools to help managers, researchers and practitioners ensure the maximum success of a coral reef restoration project and the most efficient use of limited resources.CRC_logo_blue

Through a partnership with experts from the Coral Restoration Consortium (CRC) this expanded restoration module has been developed. New content covers the following topics prioritized by a survey of coral reef managers globally:

  • An introduction to restoration and its role in coral reef management
  • Key considerations to be made when planning a restoration project or program
  • Enhancing coral populations through fragmentation and larval recruitment
  • Adding new or enhancing already present reef substrate
  • Restoring the reef environment including other coastal habitats
