Save the Date – 5th of October 2023!
We are thrilled to announce an upcoming webinar that tackles one of the most pressing challenges in the realm of marine conservation and sustainable fisheries: Navigating 30×30 – building bridges between conservation and small-scale fisheries: potential and pitfalls of other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs) for African oceans and coasts.
Join us for an engaging discussion led by experts, small-scale fisher representatives, practitioners, and stakeholders in marine conservation and fisheries. This webinar will delve into the complexities of implementing 30×30 for African oceans and coasts. An official invitation with agenda and confirmed list of speakers and panellists will follow soon.
Key questions to be discussed:
- Can 30×30 be achieved in the African context, and if so, how?
- How can Locally Managed Marine Areas (LMMAs) contribute to 30×30?
- What insights and lessons can be shared for implementing marine OECMs?
- What’s in it for small-scale fishers?
- How can development cooperation facilitate relevant processes?
