The work and functioning of ICRI are underpinned by several foundational documents. ICRI’s ‘Call to Action’ was crafted at the inaugural ICRI meeting in 1995 and embodies the origins of ICRI, setting out four pillars on which action to protect and manage coral reefs can be based. The Call was accompanied by a ‘Framework for Action’ which identified mechanisms by which the Call could be implemented. The Call to Action was renewed in 1998. ICRI has also adopted some light ‘rules’ set out in its Organisational and Management Procedures.
ICRI Members regularly adopts recommendations, decisions, host secretariat advisories and reports to attract attention on issues of serious, widespread concern. It may also adopt resolutions to guide its own functioning and activities.
This section includes detailed General Meeting Minutes.
These include ICRI’s communication and outreach materials, publications by ICRI’s networks and committees, and other ICRI publications such as guides for managers.
In this section, you’ll find documents related to the inclusion of coral reefs and/or ICRI in international texts (United Nations General Assembly resolutions, United Nations Environment Assembly decisions, and output documents from Multilateral Environmental Agreements such as the Convention of Biological Diversity or the Ramsar Convention).
Members provide up-to-date written reports of ongoing activities (known as ‘Member’s Reports’) in support of the Initiative and provide it to the Secretariat before each General Meeting.
