Some encouraging news is that we are very hopeful that a small pool of NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) funds may become available to support follow-up assessments (i.e. monitoring) exercises in a few nodes. This is not yet finalized, so no celebrations just yet, however, keep your fingers crossed!

With regards to other possible sources of funding, I was recently invited to give a presentation at the 16th Consultative Committee Meeting on Large Marine Ecosystems and Coastal Partners in Paris, France. This effort is supported by a number of large organizations including the Global Environment Facility and other UN agencies. These LME projects are typically large and address large scale coastal and watershed issues.
