This capacity includes knowledge/experience, outreach/advocacy, and standing and commitment to achieving conservation outcomes for resources and the coral reef ecosystem.
During this 8th committee meeting, facilitators will lead discussions with committee members regarding the following:
- Review water quality initiatives in the Coral ECA
- Identify potential set of criteria for water quality
- Co-develop survey for constituency
