Adaptive Management to Coral Reef Systems in Kenya: Addressing Pollution Problems (research project funded by National Geographic Society)

This study investigated water quality in terms of nutrients quality and quantity and examined the coral reefs health along Mtwapa Creek, Mombasa Marine Park and Mombasa Marine Reserve, exposed to different nutrient sources in the Kenyan Coast. Furthermore, the research proposed management intervention to save coral reefs in the region; how to involve local communities through education and awareness creation on the need for waste management, and the impact of urban waste on reef systems and champion management practice change in priority areas

Funded by National Geographic Society (2017)
