This section in ReefBase provides information on coastal and marine management related issues for countries/territories. Much of the information was taken from various status reports, such as those produced by the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN), as well from UNEP-WCMC's "World Atlas of Coral Reefs". As is the case with many other parts of the database, we are continually adding information to the database as reports become available. Eventually we hope to provide relevant information on all coral reef countries.
