South China Sea Coral Reefs Publications

The UNEP/GEF South China Sea Project has published a series of technical reports on coral reefs in the South China Sea. The first reviews the progress and achievements of the coral reef habitat demonstration sites at Masinlic in the Philippines; Phu Quoc in Vietnam; Mu Koh Chang in Thailand; Belitung in Indonesia; and Ninh Hai in Vietnam. The publication is entitled Coral Reef Demonstration Sites in the South China. This publication complements the Regional Review of Coral Reefs in the South China Sea produced by the UNEP/GEF Regional Working Group on Coral Reefs.

Another substantive output of the coral reefs component of the UNEP/GEF South China Sea project are the National Reports on Coral Reefs of the South China Sea. The English language versions of these reports have been compiled and recently published as a single volume on coral reefs in the South China Sea.
