Scientific Expertise is
the Core of our Identity
CORDIO is one of the leading sources of scientific and monitoring expertise on coral reefs in the region, including their resilience to climate change, and other related topics such as coastal fisheries, endangered species and biogeography. CORDIO’s research effectively bridges science and management, notably through its body of work pioneering sustainability in artisanal fishing gears and the establishment of LMMAs in Kenya.
CORDIO’s publications are diverse and increasingly multi-disciplinary, ranging from top global scientific journals such as Science and Nature, to user-friendly manuals on fisheries and LMMAs designed for local communities and other managers. CORDIO employs a collaborative, inclusive and open research culture, spanning numerous other conservation organisations, government agencies and academic institutions.
