Background

The Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI) Regional Plan of Action (RPOA) establishes the goal, targets, and actions for CCA. The first CTI Regional Exchange for CCA Policy and Action was conducted in October 2010 in Indonesia, resulting in, among other outputs, a draft framework for a CCA early action plan and the design for a second regional exchange. The Second CTI Regional Exchange on CCA: Tools for action was hosted by the Solomon Islands to determine data, tools, and methodologies needed to identify and implement early actions. A major output of the second CTI Regional Exchange was the draft Region-wide Early Action Plan for Climate Change Adaptation in the Coral Triangle (CTI REAP-CCA). The CTI REAP-CCA, finalized and adopted by the CTI senior officials meeting in 2011, identifies early actions that can be implemented by each Coral Triangle Country.

The CTI will conduct a Six-Country Regional Exchange on Climate Change Adaptation: Status, lessons learned, and roadmap for the future. The regional exchange will provide a forum for the six Coral Triangle Countries to report on implementation of the REAP and indicators to measure progress under CTI monitoring and evaluation system.
