2013 • 2 years • Conservation & Sustainable Development
The University of the South Pacific’s Institute of Applied Sciences acts as a coordinating mechanism for the Locally-Managed Marine Area Network (LMMA Network) in the Pacific. The LMMA Network now provides a forum for practitioners (communities, individuals, organizations, and researchers) to share experiences and information about LMMAs and community-based adaptive management, and to work collaboratively to promote this approach. The grant will support the continued essential “networking” functions for the Indo-Pacific LMMA membership. In line with the Foundation’s new Coastal Marine emphasis on scaling up local fisheries management globally, the project will emphasize analysis and outreach beyond the Pacific.
