18 Jul 2019 - report - project: 4489 - English [TWAP] Volume 6 - Annex L: The Open Ocean: Selected Indicators
Volume 6 Transboundary Water Systems: Crosscutting Status and Trends (A Summary for Policy Makers) – highlights a first global analysis to examine the present-day thematic dimensions of risk among 756 international water systems across five water categories in 14 regions of the world. It hopes to encourage subsequent assessments to quantify and monitor interactions between systems, and make these system-system linkages as salient bases for effective transboundary water management in a warming...

27 Jun 2019 - report - project: 4690 - English [CCRES] Site report: El Nido, Philippines
El Nido is a coastal municipality in the north of Palawan in the Philippines. With 18 barangays (the smallest administrative division in the Philippines) and covering 465 square kilometres, the western side of the municipality (Bacuit Bay) has been declared a national managed resource-protected area due to its high marine and terrestrial biodiversity. Ten principle activities were undertaken at El Nido, Palawan in the Philippines, by local, national and international researchers for the CCRES...
27 Jun 2019 - report - project: 4690 - English [CCRES] Site report: Selayar, Indonesia
Selayar is as an archipelago of 130 islands (26 are inhabited), so the services provided by coastal ecosystems are vital for the food security, livelihoods and welfare of people in local communities. The waters of Selayar are a meeting place for currents from the Indian and Pacific oceans and border deep ocean waters. This geography gives rise to rich and fertile pelagic fishery resources with high economic value, such as tuna and skipjack, and fish exports to Bali and Hong Kong. Selayar was ...

07 Jun 2019 - report - project: 4489 - English [TWAP] Summary for Policy Makers - VOLUME 4: Large Marine Ecosystems — Status and Trends (English)
This LMEs assessment is the first indicator-based global, comparative, baseline assessment of the 66 LMEs. To facilitate the comparative assessment, LMEs were grouped into five colour-coded categories of relative risk, from lowest to highest. Results are at the scale of each entire LME and do not reflect management approaches of any one country within an LME. A sub-set of indicators was also assessed for the Western Pacific Warm Pool. Published in 2016.

L’évaluation des Grands écosystèmes marins est la première évaluation comparative mondiale des 66 Grands écosystèmes marins réalisée à partir d’indicateurs. Pour faciliter cette évaluation comparative, les Grands écosystèmes marins ont été répartis en cinq catégories assorties de codes couleur selon le risque relatif, allant du plus faible au plus élevé. Les résultats sont à l’échelle de chaque écosystème et ne reflètent pas les méthodes de gestion pratiquées par un pays à l’intérieur de l’éc...
