CORDAP Landscape Study on Managing Ecological Risks of Coral Reef Interventions


Aestra was engaged by the Australian Institute of Marine Science to provide project management services for a knowledge collation project for managing ecological risks related to coral reef interventions.

The Coral Research and Development Accelerator Platform (CORDAP) was launched in 2020 by the G20 to fast-track research and development solutions to save the world’s corals. CORDAP aims to bring together the best minds worldwide (in a transdisciplinary approach) to accelerate international research and development to supply the technologies and innovations required to secure a future for corals and reefs.

Our work culminated in the successful delivery of an international coral reef expert workshop in Brisbane. Outcomes of the workshop will guide CORDAP in research and development investment for ecological risk management of coral reef interventions.
