State of Coral Reefs in French Overseas Départements and Territories : New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna, French Polynesia, Clipperton, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mayotte, La Réunion, Scattered French Indian Ocean Islands
This brochure provides a synopsis of a larger document containing a chapter on each of the DOM-TOM, to be published in English and French. The document was commissioned from C. GABRIE (Consultant in Tropical Marine and Coastal Environments) as a preliminary and as yet incomplete assessment of the state of DOM-TOM coral reefs. The assessment was made in collaboration with a large number of managers and researchers. The resulting document is intended as an aid for policy- makers, by describing the specific features of the various coral reefs and explaining why they need to be preserved, and also for scientists, by outlining the management and conservation tools available at national and international level. The document describes the current state of coral reefs, their importance, the pressures being exerted on those ecosystems and the responses made by the various parties involved.
