International Tropical Marine Ecosystems Management Symposiums
These symposia, held every four years or so, are a flagship activity of ICRI. They aim to develop and strengthen the capacities of coastal and marine managers and their partners to conserve and promote the sustainable use of coral reefs and related ecosystems. ITMEMS has been convened previously in Australia (1998), the Philippines (2003 & 2015), Mexico (2006) and Guadeloupe (2011). The 6th ITMEMS will be held in Indonesia.
