CTI 3rd Local Government Network ForumMeeting
(Meeting: 25-27 March 2015) The Regional Plan of Action (RPOA) of the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) recognizes the importance of local governments and communities in coastal and marine management and protection. For this reason, there has been from the outset an ongoing effort to engage local governments in the CTI-CFF process.
At the 9th CTI-CFF Senior Officials Meeting in November 2013, the CTI-CFF endorsed the proposal of Papua New Guinea to host the next LGN Forum. The CTI-CFF also acknowledged the aspiration and initiatives undertaken by CTI-CFF LGN and its members to work with each other to promote the conservation and sustainability of the Coral Triangle’s marine resources and acknowledged the outcomes of the various national CTI-CFF LGN activities that have been held in the past years.
The 3rd LGN Forum will be held at Alotau, Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea.
