We work with coastal communities to develop transformative approaches for nurturing and sustaining locally led marine conservation. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local people, cultures and economies.

communityconservation3

We’re supporting coastal communities to develop their own locally managed marine areas, designed to sustain local fisheries and safeguard marine biodiversity.

CH-BACKGROUND

We’re supporting coastal communities to rebuild their artisanal fisheries, establishing periodic reserves and adding value to seafood supply chains.

mangrove

We’re supporting coastal communities to link the conservation of mangrove, seagrass and coastal wetland habitats with international carbon markets and other payments for ecosystem services.

aquaculture1

We’re supporting coastal communities to diversify their livelihoods, developing lucrative sea cucumber and seaweed farms with private sector partners as a way of reducing fishing pressure and alleviating poverty.

communityhealth1

We’re training local women to offer reproductive health education and services in their villages, enabling couples to plan and better provide for their families, improving food security and boosting local conservation efforts.

education1

We’re supporting coastal communities to develop the skills they need to diversify their livelihoods and manage their marine resources sustainably, from school scholarships through to environmental education and technical training.
