This report provides an overview of the available evidence for the links between tropical marine habitats and the provision of ecosystem services. It forms one of the outputs of Project 3: Impacts on Ecosystem Services and Values of the Global Challenges Research Fund, Blue Communities Programme (grant number: NE/ P021107/1). GCRF Blue Communities aims to build capacity for sustainable interactions with marine ecosystems for the benefit of the health, well-being, food security and livelihoods of coastal communities in SE Asia. It focuses on four case study sites in SE Asia: Palawan, Philippines; Taka Bonerate Kepulauan Selayar, Indonesia; Cu Lao Cham, Viet Nam and Tun Mustapha Park in Sabah, Malaysia, the first three sites being UN Man and Biosphere Reserves, the latter being part of the largest multiple use marine park in Malaysia (Figure 1). The sites were chosen to reflect marine parks in which human use is limited by regional regulations aiming to achieve sustainable use. One site also contains some urban coastal space (Puerto Princesa City, Palawan).

GCRF Blue Communities is developing interdisciplinary research capability and lasting collaborations that can facilitate innovative application of integrated planning in the marine environment and respond to the UN Sustainable Development Goals of ‘no poverty’, ‘zero hunger’, ‘good health and well-being’ for coastal communities as well as ‘conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development’ through the sustainable use of marine resources. It aims to provide a research base that supports planning in the marine environment (marine planning) through a novel integration of ecosystem services, ecosystem valuation (monetary and non-monetary), ecological public health, and governance approaches.

Project 3 contributes to this overall aim by spatially defining what ecosystem services are delivered by each case study site, their uses and the pressures upon them. This report focuses specifically on ecosystem service delivery of marine habitats in SE Asia to ensure it can be applied to the case study sites.
