The Global Socioeconomic Monitoring Initiative for Coastal Management, SocMon, is an initiative aimed at helping coastal managers better understand and incorporate the socioeconomic context into coastal management programs, implemented at the global and regional levels.

Collecting socioeconomic data is key to answering management questions and informing policy decisions, to improve both human wellbeing and ecological health.

SocMon is a global initiative of the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN), an operational network of ICRI aiming to provide the best available scientific information on the status and trends of coral reef ecosystems for their conservation and management.
