A report from the ‘Scaling success in octopus fisheries management in the Western Indian Ocean’ workshop held in Zanzibar on 3-5 December 2014, which addresses the key issues faced by small-scale fisheries in the Western Indian Ocean.
Perhaps the most understudied ecosystem services are related to socio-cultural values tied to non-material benefits arising from human–ecosystem relationships. Here we apply a discrete choice experiment (DCE) to determine indigenous fishers' preferences and willingness-to-pay for bequest gains from management actions in a locally managed marine area in Madagascar, and use our results to estimate an implicit discount rate.
Keywords: Cultural ecosystem services; Bequest value; Discrete choice experiment; Discount rate; Economic valuation; Madagascar
Blue Ventures' community health programme delivers health education and services in order to enable people to make their own reproductive health choices, as part of our integrated Population-Health-Environment (PHE) approach. Safidy, meaning "the freedom to choose" in Malagasy, has been operating in the Velondriake locally managed marine area on Madagascar's southwest coast since August 2007, and in Belo sur Mer since May 2013. This report provides a summary of community health activities carried out during the seventh year of the programme (2013-2014).
A report from the ‘Community based aquaculture in the western Indian Ocean: Challenges faced and lessons learned’ workshop held in Zanzibar on December 9-11, 2013, which addresses the key issues faced by CBA practitioners in the WIO region.
Population-Health-Environment (PHE) is an interdisciplinary model of programme design which recognises the complex interconnections between people, their health and their environment.
