As part of the international coral reef initiative, The GCRMN has three primary objectives:
Strengthen scientific understanding of the status and trends of coral reef ecosystems at different places around the world and to support the International Coral Reef Initiative
Strengthen communication among GCRMN members of the network and provide information on network activities, identify opportunities to participate in regional and global reporting, share information on relevant meetings and involve GCRMN members in future monitoring (including biophysical monitoring and new opportunities to routinely integrate this information with social, economic and environmental data), and assist Network members in the identification of potential opportunities for financial support.
Make coral reef monitoring data publicly available in a timely fashion
