Key Habitats, Coral Reef Health and Marine Managed Areas
This tool provides access to standardized indicators that allow you to monitor the status and trends of the marine environment, the effectiveness of their management, and the health of the communities that rely on it.
The following countries are included in this regional assessment. Select a country below to view a national assessment:

Coral reef health is measured using four indicators: coral cover, fleshy macroalgae, herbivorous fish and commercial fish. The Coral Reef Health Index (RHI) is the average of the four indicators. Each indicator is assessed at the country and regional level for a given year resulting in a score from 0 and 5 and a grade ranging from Very Good to Critical. If an indicator has been assessed for at least two years then a trend is calculated for the two most recent years, otherwise it is listed as Not Available (N/A). The number of sites sampled and source dataset are also provided for each indicator.
