A practical guide for coastal resource managers to reduce damage from catchment areas based on best practise case studies

The report aims to help people manage coral reefs and associated ecosystems; especially to solve problems that flow from nearby catchment areas. Such areas may be adjacent to coral reefs, or be outside the jurisdiction and control of the coastal manager. The report introduces ways to reduce some of that damage through cooperation with people and industries upstream, and is based on the experiences of many coastal managers from around the world.
