Conservation and Community Investment Forum (CCIF)
New! The David and Lucile Packard Foundation commissioned the Trust for Conservation Innovation/ Conservation and Community Investment Forum and partners to assess, in six Western Pacific countries, the state of enabling conditions viewed as critical for a community-driven, rights-based management approach to coastal marine resources. The reports produced for this effort present a snapshot of the status of certain factors affecting the potential success of such an approach.
