Abstract
    This report summarises work undertaken in the Bay of Jakarta and Thousand Islands by participants from all over South East Asia, during a Unesco Workshop in 1985. Over 550 manhours were spent collecting data on the geomorphology of islands mapped first by the Netherlands in the early 1900's; on the biological status of the surrounding coral reefs and measurements of coral growth along a pollution gradient from Jakarta Bay to the outermost Thousand Islands, some 80 km from the capital.During the Workshop over thirty islands were visited and surveyed. The results of the exercise showed that many of the reefs had deteriorated in condition since the earlier almost disappeared as a consequence of erosion resulting from dredging of the reefs nearby. The report also contains sections on methods for assessment of reef deterioration and their application in the field as well as statements on human induced damage to reefs in the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, South China Sea, Maldives and Papua New Guinea.
