We support coastal communities to develop their own locally managed marine areas, designed to sustain local fisheries and safeguard marine biodiversity.
We support coastal communities to rebuild their fisheries, establishing temporary fishery closures and permanent marine reserves, while adding value to seafood supply chains.
We support coastal communities to link the conservation of mangrove, seagrass and coastal wetland habitats with international carbon markets and other payments for ecosystem services.
We support 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.
We support local women to offer health education and services in their villages, enabling couples to plan and better provide for their families, improving food security and enhancing local conservation efforts.
We support 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.
