In this context, UN Environment-CEP/SPAW-RAC coordinated the first GCRMN-Caribbean Integrated Coral Reef Monitoring Workshop.

The scientific capacity building event, “GCRMN-Caribbean Guidelines Capacity Building Workshop: Towards comprehensive coral reef monitoring” integrated the newly endorsed Biophysical and Socio-economic Guidelines to the training programmes. The participants were invited in the training through the nomination by national management authorities of suitably committed Marine Protected Area and coastal resource managers, coral reef monitoring practitioners and conservationists as well as representatives from local research centres and universities.
