Description

To support the development of indicators, methods and measures for the National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan, the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program sponsored a workshop for scientists to review the socioeconomic plan, validate and refine the indicators and develop secondary data measures. Held at the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science Hollings Marine Laboratory June 13-15, 2012, the workshop produced outputs that will be used along with the previously developed plan and survey questions in monitoring seven inhabited U.S. Coral Reef jurisdictions. The group prioritized thirteen indicators and provided valuable details on measurement and methods. This workshop provided an opportunity for expanded review of the National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan social science indicators and monitoring plan to ensure optimal design of this important program. Many of the participants are interested in continuing to advise the socioeconomic monitoring team as National Coral Reef Monitoring Plan implementation begins in FY 13, leading to the national status and trends report card.
