AIC Strategic Plan, 2016-2020
The 2016-2020 strategic plan sets out effective and worthwhile goals addressing three key needs in the jurisdictions and Freely Associated States: 1) Sufficient capacity, 2) Adequate and sustained funding for coral reef management, and 3) Jurisdiction/FAS-federal integration towards resource-focused outcomes. The fourth goal is specific to capacity and effectiveness of the AIC itself. These goals are balanced against the realistic limitations of the AIC. This plan builds on the AIC’s previous plans and helps define the focus and direction of the Committee over the next five years. Learn more about our plan here.
AIC Communications Plan
The AIC Communications Plan was developed by the Points of Contact in 2006 as a blueprint for ensuring efficiency, clarity, and responsibility for AIC members, the Committee as a whole, and the Executive Director of the Secretariat. The plan was updated in 2015.
The AIC was developed by the AIC and Secretariat in 2007 and clarifies the duties of committee members and provides for implementation of initiatives, including establishment of the AIC Secretariat, membership, and roles of committee officers. The charter was updated in 2014.
