Reports are the backbone of any organization, as they are the official version of events that identify challenges, projects completed and decisions made when managing MPAs. These reports are stored and become public record for future reference and research. When reports form part of an administration system – where they can be accessed – they become useful documents that can track progress and assist researchers to establish trends and solutions over time. The State of SA MPA Reports was initiated by WWF as a tool to better manage our MPAs, identifying challenges that needed addressing. These reports are available here for you to access and monitor the changes as recorded over time.
