The Indian Ocean Commission (IOC) organized a regional workshop for exchanges and training on coral reef monitoring in Albion, Mauritius, from 24 to 26 February 2015. In this context, the IOC’s Biodiversity and ISLANDS projects, funded by the European Union, and the IOC’s project for the Sustainable Management of Coastal Zones (GDZC), funded by the French Global Environment Fund (FFEM), will combine efforts to improve the capacity of the Regional Reef Monitoring Network. As the workshop was essentially of a technical nature, participating countries, (IOC member states & Kenya and Tanzania) were all represented by people involved in coral reef monitoring at the national level.
