Bunce, L. Townsley, P., Pomeroy, R., Pollnac, R. 2000. Socioeconomic Manual for Coral Reef Management. GCRMN, AIMS, Townsville, Australia.

This manual, which was developed to parallel the existing biophysical manual (English et al. 1997), is intended for use by coral reef managers to assist them with basic socioeconomic assessments in their communities.

The audience is the manager who does not have formal social science training and may use English as a second or third language. Implementation of this manual should be accompanied by training and guidance in conducting socioeconomic assessments.
