A map-based analysis of human pressure on coral reefs in Sabah, Malaysia, designed to halt reef degradation and improve coastal management.

Executive Summary

This project used the tools, techniques and data developed under the Reefs at Risk in Southeast Asia project to implement more detailed analyses of threats to coastal resources in Sabah in close collaboration with local partners. Another key aspect of the project was dissemination of results in order to raise awareness of other government officials and the public and improve management of coral reefs. Ultimately, this led to the development of legislation restricting coastal development near coral reefs in Sabah.

This project was generously supported by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
