Contents Notes
This report is a map-based analysis of threats to coral reefs around the world, with particular focus on the countries of the Coral Triangleâp0sb4sIndonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste. It examines present pressures on coral reefs, including overfishing and destructive fishing, coastal development, and pollution from land and sea, as well as projected threats from climate-related ocean warming and acidification.
