My work is focused on the development of a coral reef managers’ handbook, ‘Managing Caribbean coral reefs for climate change’, as part of the European Union funded FORCE (Future of Reefs in Changing Environment) project.  The handbook will bring together the latest ideas for reef management from a broad range of disciplines including ecology, economics and the social sciences.
