This is the report for the Reefs at Risk Revisited analysis. Reefs at Risk Revisited is a high-resolution update of the original global analysis, Reefs at Risk: A Map-Based Indicator of Threats to the World’s Coral Reefs. Reefs at Risk Revisited uses a global map of coral reefs at 500-m resolution, which is 64 times more detailed than the 4-km resolution map used in the 1998 analysis, and benefits from improvements in many global data sets used to evaluate threats to reefs (most threat data are at 1 km resolution, which is 16 times more detailed than those used in the 1998 analysis).
Metadata for the Global Mangrove Watch dataset.
Document giving detailed metadata for the Global Distribution of Seamounts and Knolls dataset.
This document contains the metadata for the GEBCO Gridded Bathymetric Data 2020 dataset. GEBCO’s gridded bathymetric data set, the GEBCO_2020 grid, is a global terrain model for ocean and land at 15 arc-second intervals. It is accompanied by a Type Identifier (TID) Grid that gives information on the types of source data that the GEBCO_2020 Grid is based.
If the data sets are used in a presentation or publication then we ask that you acknowledge the source.This should be of the form: GEBCO Compilation Group (2020) GEBCO 2020 Grid (doi:10.5285/a29c5465-b138-234d-e053-6c86abc040b9)

This guide was written for governments, community groups and NGOs to address coastal protection issues through ecosystem based adaptation interventions. The work was developed as a partnership between SPREP and the University of Tasmania with funding from Australian Aid and the participation of the governments of Kiribati, Samoa, Vanuatu and Tonga.
Freedom of information laws could arguably be based on five fundamental principles – namely:
1. the principle of maximum disclosure
2. the principle of openness
3. the principle of limited exemptions
4. the principle of access
5. the principle of fairness and equity
Thisstudy provided the repeatable analysis framework to estimate the coastal population by utilizing the best available global and national datasets in Pacific (poor data environment).
