This socioeconomic manual was developed to parallel the existing biophysical manual (English et al. 1997)
It is intended for use by coral reef managers directly working in reef management around the world, to assist them with basic socioeconomic assessments in their communities. The target audience is the manager who does not have formal social-science training and may use English as a second or third language. Implementation of this manual should be accompanied by training and guidance in how to conduct socioeconomic assessments.
