The Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) is a multilateral partnership of six countries formed in 2007 to address the urgent threats facing the coastal and marine resources of one of the most biologically diverse regions on Earth. CTI-CFF is managed through a Secretariat based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The WWF’s mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth with the vision of building a future where people live in harmony with nature. By 2020, WWF will conserve many of the world’s most ecologically important regions by working in partnership with others.


The Nature Conservancy works around the world to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people by addressing the most pressing conservation threats at the largest scale. It currently works in all 50 states and more than 35 countries protecting habitats from grasslands to coral reefs, from Australia to Alaska to Zambia.

USAID aims to develop partnerships with countries committed to enabling private sector investment that is the basis of sustained economic growth to open new markets for American goods, promote trade overseas, and create jobs. It also invests in ideas that work to improve the lives of millions by investing in agricultural productivity, health projects, disaster assistance, and climate change programs.


Conservation International is dedicated to improving ocean health at a global scale through its Global Marine Division. CI works with over 150 partners around the globe, leveraging a collaborative network of partnerships at every level, including fostering opportunity and education at the local level to develop sound science to prove the links between healthy oceans and thriving people, communities and societies.

The Australian Government affords high priority to supporting the CTI-CFF in recognition of its significant biodiversity values, the reliance of the region on coastal and marine ecosystems for livelihoods and food security, and the connectivity between Australian and neighboring marine ecosystems. The Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities leads Australian engagement in close consultation with other agencies, including AusAID.
