The CTI-CFF Local Government Network (LGN)

In all nations of the Coral Triangle, a heavy responsibility for sustainably managing the regions marine and coastal resources rests with Governments.

Join us to help connect these champions and provide the support they need.

From National level government agencies responsible for policy and regulatory developments, through to on-ground local government offices responsible for the day to day oversight of key areas of critical marine importance – the governments of the Coral Triangle are at the heart of the regions efforts to be sustainable into the future.

This learning network connects local on-ground government agencies and departments across the region, to share lessons learned, exchange ideas and foster inter-governmental understanding. These local government representatives are the champions who are day to day implementing the goals of the Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF).

In 2015 the success of the LGN network led to a call for expansion of membership to include more local government institutions across the region, and the network is currently in the process of undertaking this expansion.
