2 Where is the Coral Triangle Region? Amazon Congo basin Coral Triangle Why this is so important for the world??

3 The Coral Triangle (1.6% of CT is Sea: 5.7 million km 2 (2.3 million mi 2 ) Amazon of the Seas Epicenter of Global Marine Biodiversity Over 76% (600+) of coral species About 37% (3000+) species of reef fish 6 out of 7 Marine Turtle Species Over 53% of world s coral reefs Largest extent of mangrove forests in world Six Countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands, Timor- Leste

4 Supports 36 million people of whom 120 million are directly dependent on it for livelihood, food security and way of life Up to 90% of fish and marine resources in the Coral Triangle are at immediate risk from range of factors i.e. overfishing, unsustainable fishing pracyces, polluyon and climate change The Coral Triangle

5 Threats to Coral Triangle More Than 85% of the Reefs in the Coral Triangle is Under Threat by: By overfishing for food, ornamentals Destruc.ve fishing methods such as the use of cyanide and blast fishing Rapidly increasing human populayons Coastal development Loss of cri.cal habitats Land- based sources of pollu.on Rising sea temperatures have increased threats to reefs

6 In response to the alarming trends in the region, President Yudhoyono of Indonesia proposed to other CT leaders a new multilateral partnership to safeguard the region s marine and coastal biological resources: the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF). This initial proposal set in motion a series of events that has advanced this effort quickly and decisively President Yudhoyono (Indonesia)

7 Coral Triangle Response Recognizing the need to safeguard the region s marine and coastal biological resources, Indonesian President Yudhoyono iniyated the formayon of the Coral Triangle IniYaYve on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI- CFF) in Since then, the CTI- CFF has established itself as a strong mulylateral partnership between the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands and Timor- Leste.
