Protecting Coral Triangle (CT)
« on: October 22, 2008, 11:37:55 PM »
Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste and the Philippines are finalizing standards or indicators on quality of targets to be achieved under the Regional Plan of Action these are establishing for protecting Coral Triangle (CT), the region experts identified as earth's center of biological diversity.

"We'll come up with a general framework and try getting CT countries' senior officials to endorse this for signing of leaders in the region," Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau Director Ma. Theresa Mundita-Lim said on the side of the two-day Third Meeting of the Coral Triangle Initiative Coordination Committee that began Tuesday at Crown Plaza Hotel in Quezon City.

She noted representatives from the six countries will attempt to finalize during this event qualitative indicators for the five action plan targets.

These are prioritizing investment areas and best environmental protection practices, implementing the ecosystem approach to managing fisheries and other marine resources as well as establishing and managing marine protected areas.

The other targets are adapting climate change adaptation measures and improving status of threatened species.

CT countries will develop qualitative and quantitative indicators for such action plan targets which these will attempt to achieve within 10 years.

Mundita-Lim noted discussions on quantitative indicators will take longer and may not be completed during the meeting, however.

"CT countries have different capabilities, resources and levels of development," she said. - PNA
