6th International Tropical Marine Ecosystems Management Symposium

Healthy reef, wealthy ocean


The upcoming 6th International Tropical Marine Ecosystems Management Symposium (ITMEMS 6) will be held in Manado, (Indonesia) between the 14th-17th of April 2020 under the theme ‘Healthy Reef, Wealthy Ocean'.

ITMEMS is a core activity of ICRI and has been convened by ICRI Secretariats in 1998 (Australia), 2003 (Philippines), 2006 (Mexico), 2009 (Guadeloupe) and 2016 (Philippines), with the involvement and participation of ICRI members. To read more about previous ITMEMS see here.

ITMEMS 6 will focus on coral reef management challenges and their possible solutions. The objective of this symposium is to explore approaches in sustainable coral reef management and their related ecosystems.

We are currently developing the programme and we welcome suggestions on topics you would like to see included in this symposium.

More information will be available shortly.

In the interim if you would like more information, please contact Claire Rumsey and Fegi Nurhabni.
