National Coral Reef Monitoring Program Socioeconomic Monitoring Component : Summary Findings for Guam, 2016
Filetype[PDF-4.54 MB]

  • Description:
    The Socioeconomic Component of the National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) is currently in the process of monitoring socioeconomic indicators across all United States (US) coral reef territories and jurisdictions. These indicators fall under the following broader categories: the demographics of these areas, human use of coral reef resources, and knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of coral reefs and coral reef management. The overall goal of this endeavor is to track relevant information regarding each jurisdiction's population, social and economic structure, society’s interactions with coral reef resources, and the responses of local communities to coral management. From there, these baseline data are used to develop indicators that describe the state of each jurisdiction and provide researchers with the ability to compare jurisdictions to one another. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) will use the information for future research, to assess the socioeconomic outcomes of management activities, and to improve the results of programs designed to protect coral reef resources.

    This report outlines human dimensions information relevant to coral reef resources in Guam. The findings here are derived from a combination of data gathered through household surveys conducted from February to July of 2016, and additional secondary sources of socioeconomic information for the region.
