Developing the Business Case for Marine Conservation in the Coral Triangle


TierraMar worked closely with key divisional and country marine program staff (Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Solomon Islands) of The Nature Conservancy’s Indo-Pacific Division to develop a Coral Triangle Regional Priority Program Business Plan FY14-18.  The planning process required pro-active and inclusive consultation with staff and external stakeholders to determine a workable theory of change and realistic, accomplishable five year strategies and outcomes. The challenges facing the organisation were identified and analysis of a range of emerging opportunities which could be developed to support plan implementation, including existing and potential partners and participation in various CTI platforms, was undertaken. The plan also included a comprehensive risk assessment, analysis of staff and resource needs, identification of gaps in capacity and solutions to address these and importantly, a range of options for best measuring progress and conservation impact.
