THIS IS AN INVITATION ONLY MEETING - The Reef Resilience Network (RR Network) supports reef managers and practitioners globally to better address climate change and other stressors on coral reef ecosystems. Capacity-building is implemented through the web-based Reef Resilience toolkit http://www.reefresilience.org, online courses, in-person trainings, a webinar series, and an online community of coral reef, fisheries, and MPA managers and practitioners. Global experts are critical for our Network to ensure we continue to provide the best science available to inform and support on-the-ground management efforts. Experts currently volunteer their time to support core RR Network activities including serving as: mentors for the online course, coaches for trainings, webinar speakers, mentors for ask-the-expert online discussion forums, and developers and reviewers of web-based toolkit content. To evaluate how we can better address the needs of our network, we invite our expert contributors to come together to thank them for their contribution, share experiences participating in the Network, identify opportunities for better meeting their needs, and explore approaches for expanding our network. We invite global coral reef/climate change/fisheries experts who have served as mentors and coaches for online course, toolkit reviewers, and webinar speakers. We also invite those interested in learning about contributing to our network to support coral reef and fisheries managers and practitioners around the world.
