WIOMPAN is now live!

The Nairobi Convention and WIOMSA have partnered to launch the Western Indian Ocean Marine Protected Areas Managers Network (WIOMPAN) on World Oceans Day. WIOMPAN is a platform where MPA managers, community members, and scientists can collaborate, share cross-project knowledge and learning, and exchange information, experiences and resources to support management of MPAs in the WIO region.

To officially launch the Network a short video was produced with a call for action from MPA leaders.  View the video here! 

We have now also launched the brand new WIOMPAN website: https://wiomsa.org/wiompan/
The website is a  one-stop-shop for MPA and LMMA practitioners to access:
  • capacity development opportunities via training, mentorship and professional certification (WIO-COMPAS)a forum where people can submit questions or issues they are facing, which other MPA professionals or a panel of experts can respond to;
  • a marketplace where institutions or individuals donating equipment, materials and educational resources can exchange commodities;
  • better understanding of current trends in MPA management;
  • up-to-date research and information pertaining to MPAs;
