The strategy outlines specific actions and encourages transnational collaboration and can be used to help guide the development of national strategies and local management plans.

The International Coral Reef Initiative is a Partnership among governments, international organisations and nongovernment organisations, which strives to raise awareness at all levels on the plight of coral reefs around the world.
