Community-based resource management and climate change vulnerability assessments in Solomon Islands – Coral Triangle Support Partnership

The warm tropical waters of the Coral Triangle may host the richest diversity of marine life on this planet. More than 75% of all recorded coral species and at least 3,000 fish species and can be found here.
