MIDDLE EAST
REGIONAL GROUP

GEOGRAPHICAL FOCUS AREA: Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Tadjorah, Gulf of Aqaba and the Arabian Gulf

The CRC adopted the newly formed Middle East Regional Group in 2021. The Group will establish a functional regional network, which will include building up a contacts database, a projects database, and the setting up of communication platforms to exchange information and promote the group.

 

The regional group is led by primary chair, Dr. Sebastian Schmidt-Roach (KAUST) and by Co-Chair, Dr. Rebecca Klaus.

PRIORITIES

The Middle East group's mission is to identify and connect coral reef restoration initiatives within the region and to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and information.
