Target 10
By 2015, the multiple anthropogenic pressures on coral reefs, and other vulnerable ecosystems impacted by climate change or ocean acidification are minimized, so as to maintain their integrity and functioning.

Proposed National targets

By 2020 minimise anthropogenic pressures on coastal and marine resources by 50%

Progress towards the target

Kenya Coastal Development programme (KCDP), for sustainable management of Kenya’s coastal and marine resources established

Integrated Coastal Zone Management(ICZM) is in place and is being implemented

Monitoring of coastal biodiversity ongoing e.g Watamu Turtle watch

ICZM policy

Oceans policy

Major coral reefs within the Kenya Indian Ocean are protected as part of the Marine PAs.

Sensitization regarding pollution and silt  into the sea to minimize climate change impacts on the corals

Implementation of Nairobi convention protocol on LBS

NCCRS and Action plan by 2017

Update information on the sources of pressures

Update knowledge base on status trends on coral reefs and other vulnerable  ocean ecosystems
